"Linux games publisher Loki, Creative Technologies and Corel Corporation have teamed up to release an Open Source, cross-platform 3D audio library that offers vastly improved 3D sound to developers working with the Linux gaming plaform, resulting in more sound effect capability."

"This is great news for Linux; games running on Linux can now have the 3D audio features available on other platforms. OpenAL gives game developers a single 3D audio reference point that will work on any platform."

" 'Open AL represents a milestone for Linux and for the game industry in general,' Scott Draeker, president of Loki Entertainment Software asserted in a recent press release. 'Until now, games running on Linux have not had access to the advanced 3D-Audio features available on other platforms. OpenAL provides those advanced features with an Open Source, non proprietary implementation which is available not just for Linux, but for Windows and Maces games as well.' "
