when using core functions upgraded from extensions, what do u do? is it pretty much what im doing now (loading the extensions using PFNGL####ARBPROC) except dropping the 'ARB' suffix? if so, what is the advantage of simply dropping 'ARB'?

Yes i am using windows...bugger too...but as i said before its possible to drop the 'ARB' from 'PFNGL####ARBPROC' and from 'wglGetProcAddress("gl####ARB")', is there any advantage of doing this, besides from making myself think microsoft has given me > 1.1? :D

i always drop the ARB EXT if possible, theres no difference performance wise/ implemementation wise it just makes the code look cleaner

This brings up a question tho...is OpenGL 2.0 gonna change anything for windows users? besides from dropping more 'ARB's?

The gl specs mention that when arb extension is promoted to the gl core that it can change in some way. This is described at the end of the specs docs.
