OpenGL stands for Open Graphics Library, and is a 3D graphics API, used to interpret calls made from games and other software into on-screen results.
Its competitor, DirectX, is only available on Microsoft platforms, and on Linux through WINE as a limited implementation. OpenGL is dominant on Mac OS X and Linux and is also available for Microsoft Windows.
