    As mentioned Nvidia's driver 295.73 WHQL for Win7, will install just fine in windows 8, and then OpenGL is fully (AFAIK) supported.

    OpenGL still a no-go on Win8, even with the brand-new 9.18.12.9617. Amazing. Anyone see anything different?

    Google Earth works fine for me in both DirectX and OpenGL mode. Using the latest NVidia 296.17 driver.

    I haven't tried that particular app, but does it have a fallback position where it still runs but just more slowly, like Algodoo does for me? Angry Birds, OTOH, just flat-out says, no, sorry. Aida64 shows no OpenGL above v1.1. The other possibility is that they haven't enabled OpenGL for all their normally supported cards, just some of them.

    Well, here Quake 3 plays very well in OpenGL after installing the new WHQL driver, and also after the even newer 296.17 driver. I have still to see an OpenGL program that don't work.
