    OpenGL and Windows XP

    Is it possible to develop and run OpenGL programs in Windows XP? I only ask since in the MSDN reference section under OpenGL they never mention XP, only 95/98, NT and 2000.

    Thanks in advance.

    Default video drivers XP installs don't support OpenGL*, but the OS itself does.

    *My version is an early version they might have changed this in later releases.
