Tao.OpenGl is my OpenGL binding. You can find it on my site http://www.randyridge.com/Tao/Default.aspx. However my host has been having issues, I'll be moving the site the middle of next week. You may want to snag the dll's from Axiom's CVS since you may have trouble until the hosting situation is resolved. It's not entirely clear what you're attempting to do, however. I don't exactly understand what 'too much time to set up' infers. You can go from 0 to triangle in about 20 seconds with Tao and its SimpleOpenGlControl (see the tutorial on the page) though. Though I suspect with any of the others you mentioned you could do the same.

Search for "Tao GL" rather than TaoGL. Seems to be a C# GL framework.

Yeah, as I said hosting issues. I should be moving the site on Wednesday and hopefully the DNS entries will be updated by Friday. In the meantime I put the setup for the 1.1.0.0 version here: http://www.randyridge.com/Tao/Tao.Framework.Setup.msi and you should be able to get to that. Hopefully I''ll have a new version out sometime soon as well, was scheduled for the end of the month, but with the move it''ll probably be delayed somewhat. If you like you can build the latest yourself, the source is available at http://vaultpub.sourcegear.com.

Tao.OpenGL is the only way you want to do OGL with C#, trust me.

The others are not bad, but Tao seems to be the best all around after looking at it and playing with it.

Either go Tao or MDX.

I don''t quite understand your "takes to long to set up DX basecode" theory, because setting up MDX in C# is about 10-15 lines =]
