Here is one interesting link on the OpenGL & D3D relationship. It's a bit dated now but is a good exposition of what happened back then:
http://www.vcnet.com/bms/features/3d.html

Here's the newsgroup history discussion thread:
http://www.opengl.org/developers/faqs/technical/oglhist.txt

That one is tough to parse.

Another link on the technical stuff, the identity of the authors in some of the stuff is significant.
