Is that possibile to have a OpenGL Hardware Accelerated window? (Not fullscreen). I mean, i have to work on a CAD app but when i initialize opengl i figure that i'm using GDI Generic driver for rendering (glGetString)

Under Windows: not possible
Under Linux: possible thanks to a Mesa trick

Argh.. :p So just software ogl? Well, dunno if someone ever used GTK Q3 level editor.. well it reports on the same pc that is using hardware rendering :p

You sure? I've got a voodoo3 and i can get acceleration in windowed mode... I think you have to use 16 bit mode tough, and maybe the desktop has to have the same setting (16bit color)
