Re: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions - losing the PC

May of us over in X3D land have been talking about this for months. The Ajax3D effort, whilst not formally a Web3D project, is another great step in this direction, as is the Canvas 3D effort from the Mozilla Foundation (http://wiki.mozilla.org/Canvas:3D). Personally, I'm learning Ruby and loving it as it reminds me of my old Perl days. The Mac is hot indeed and the platform of choice for all things 2D and 3D.

Recently I was at an open source developers conference.

I was really surprised at the number of developers with Apple notebooks and what they were doing with those things.

It seems that most of the important languages/things are running on apple now, ie *nix, perl, php, python, ruby, gcc etc....

The 3D effects of those are stunning.

Time to devote more time to learning OpenGL I think.. don't want to become more of a dinosaur than I already am :-)

However, I'd like to point out that while learning OpenGL is indeed great and useful, many of things you might want to do can be done at a higher level too, such as in X3D today. If you want examples, just look at our case studies page: http://www.web3d.org/casestudies/ 

I apologize in advance for any lapse of judgment if this appears to some to be a PR plug ;-). It is not meant as such.
