Does anyone know Microsofts future commitment for OpenGL on the .net platform ?

I don't but in my opinion the involvement of MS with OpenGL has very little to do with the .NET platform...

About the same as Microsoft's commitment to Direct3D on Visual C++ .NET. IE, if you have the headers and libs, you can use it. If not, then you can't.

Now, if you're asking whether or not you can use OpenGL in a Managed C++ or C#, or even Visual Basic code via the .NET framework... I seriously doubt it. You can alwasys expose GL yourself to such things. I think someone has already written a COM/IDispatch interface to OpenGL, so Visual Basic can access it.

I have never tried it with OGL, but I work in C# and you can easely load functions from dlls. Furthermore C# has a pointer type, so it seems like C# could work just fine.
