I'm pretty sure that any VM will fall back into software rendering regardless OpenGL spec. So even if you port your code for 2.1, it will be unusable.


Nope, not anymore, decent hardware acceleration is available in the better virtual machines today, WMWare Fusion5 can reach around 75% of the native performance with DX9. (VirtualBox however is quite far behind still)

Huh, thats pretty nice! Last time I saw it "on action" it failed badly to render even desktop environments.
