OpenGL is to DirectX as 9-Ball is to what the hell?
Torvalds is to Ray Ozzie as Guinness Stout is to 1958 Glen Garioch.
Rory is to Scoble as Starbucks is to Microsoft.
Carmack is to the entire XBox team as Einstein is to God: complementary, and only a delusional jackass would elevate the former above them.
