Difference between launch options?
Play Eurotruck Simulator 2 - that one is pretty obvious

Launch with DirectIX

Launch with OpenGL

Launch in safe mode - this one is pretty obvious too

wondering the same, also how do i show fps?

The first option uses the last method you picked. Open GL is for ancient hardware, for compatibility purposes and likely won't work as well as direct X. I'm guessing safe mod disables mods. If you don't pick any options and just hit play euro truck simulator 2 it uses direct x by default but binds to whatever you launched with last.

First, you read something about Open GL and wrote the stupidity

Well actually the game was originally made in OpenGl, then they made a DirectX renderer for it to have less compatibility issues for windows users. Info taken straight from their blog. I would guess that there is a possibility then that it may run better in OpenGl at least for some people, since that is the main renderer.

So is DirectIX the "best" launch option graphicwise?

You can also download MSI Afterburner. Plus video capture is watermark free.

depends on your card
if you have a nice AMD or ATI card id be best to go just with opengl
otherwise (intel or nvidia) go with direct x

Who uses Intel cards these days? I mean everyone knows they are probably the worst graphics card.

My ATI card works brilliantly with Direct X thank you.

What about MSI?

MSI build cards based on chipsets from ATI and Nvidia. The same goes for EVGA, Gigabyte and the many other manufacturers out there.

For example: an "MSI GTX 770" is an MSI-branded card with an Nvidia chipset. If you're unsure, check out the technical details of the card and look for the "GPU" information - that should tell you more about it.
