I do agree that Compute and OpenCL is a very good option, now that it is finally possible to write code for it.
Happily it seems to be that many developers are making the change for it, although Cuda and C++ has some nice interest as well.

Absolutely true,but at least that i've heard of it,they aren't being protective to the point of ignoring that direct compute or OpenCL exists and can do the same things stream can in the end,and Nvidia marketing does keep pushing Cuda pretty hard no matter if in the longer run,GP-GPU computing can make a much larger impact when there's unified standards that works on all hardware.

What's keeping CUDA alive is that it was the first one out and there's a much more developed software infrestructure for it than either Direct compute or OpenCL,which are still in their first steps.
