huh?? what are you talking about??
all OpenGL stuff I know of works just fine in both NT 4.0 and windows 2000... all of my OpenGL proggies have ran just beautifully in 2000, as do all my OpenGL games (Quake III, specifically).

Also, this has nothing to do with SGI and OpenGL... it's up to Microsoft, or hardware manufacturers, to implement OpenGL for a given platform/hardware.

What about Linux? And what about catching up to DirectX 8 features!!?? I hope OpenGL will do something, cuz Micro$ucks is getting it's tentacles pretty tight in this area...

Also confused by this Q... OpenGL has been part of NT for ages. Last I heard, there will be a new release with Win2000 SP2 which will bring the generic implementation up to 1.2 including the optional imaging subset.
