I know that if you're on an AMD card, you can have a native EGL implementation as well as OpenGL ES:

I tried to get it working and to get ExtremeDude2 (who does have an ATI Radeon) to compile it for me, but I could never test with it on my NVIDIA-only access. NVIDIA, they make OpenGL ES access go through WGL extensions but not through EGL. And I have no idea what Intel is doing, though they mentioned eventually having an implementation of OpenGL ES for Linux.

If we do get a native EGL implementation on Windows I'd really like to check how it is. Maybe I can use it with Mesa3D then or something (which I still need to figure how to compile with the wayland acceleration support in it >.<).

really lol?

I always just figured they'd rather give a shit about DirectX. I read somewhere actually they're planning to drop support for deprecated OpenGL functions in their Linux drivers (dunno which ones yet or if they really only mean Linux). Other than that though I haven't heard anyone give a shit about the deprecation model in OpenGL 3.0 or removing functions.
