Hi,

what are you talking about? What OS, what API, what language.

Greets,

Sure, you could program openGL to be a 3D gui!!

There are several options that you can use to create a GUI along with OpenGL. Try looking for a library called GLui. It allows you to create simple user interfaces. You can also implement an opengl window in side a form using MFC or Borland C++ builder. I'm not sure how or if you can do it in .net.

Yes, it is... I've wrote 2D/3D GUI using pure OpenGL. You sure can write 'something like 2D' using OpenGL functions.

Search for Font examples and see there how it is done on: http://www.sulaco.co.za/nitrogen

You can use OpenGL with VB, too. I use VB for less intensive graphics work, but you might be suprised at how well it can perform. Using VB lets me throw together GUIS for may app really quickly. (I don't know MFC.)
