What are you talking about?

XP comes with the 1.1 DLL already and drivers for XP have been available for a while now.

Yes, of course....

BTW did you not see notice on the right side of the main openGL webpage which say it also?

OpenGL Drivers for Windows XP
* OpenGL works great under ALL versions of Windows (as well as Unix and Mac OS). Each manufacturer makes their own video drivers so you need to visit their website and download their latest OpenGL driver for your particular video card.

Available Everywhere
Supported on all UNIX® workstations, and shipped standard with every Windows 95/98/2000/NT and MacOS PC, no other graphics API operates on a wider range of hardware platforms and software environments. OpenGL runs on every major operating system including Mac OS, OS/2, UNIX, Windows 95/98, Windows 2000, Windows NT, Linux, OPENStep, and BeOS; it also works with every major windowing system, including Win32, MacOS, Presentation Manager, and X-Window System. OpenGL is callable from Ada, C, C++, Fortran, Python, Perl and Java and offers complete independence from network protocols and topologies.
