Hi all, I''ll have to admit first up I''m not an OpenGL programmer (Direct3D for me), but I''m interested in 3D graphics generally so... Anyway, I read online news the other day that Microsoft has claimed Intellectual Property rights to some major parts of the OpenGL 2.0 specification - pixel and vertex shaders mainly as I understand it. http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/26125.html for those interested in the source. What I was wondering is - does this really screw up OpenGL?? or is it just some silly legal battle that won''t really affect most people?
