In programming term Direct 3d is easier to use then openGL. The way Direct3d is setup allows users to read the code like they were reading a book.

OpenGL is more compatible with a wide variety of systems, its transportable. Direct3d tends to lack in transferability.

OpenGL is a standard for many systems unlike Direct3d where it's main use is gaming applications.
