Hello! Do you people think that X-Box will support OpenGL? Will we be able to play the quakes on it? Osku

No definitely not
X-Box will ALWAYS be directX (hence X-box). The graphics card inside of it is designed for Direct3D. Its Dolby Digital 5.1 surround can only be heard with DirectSound.
Its kinda like asking "Will Windows ever go Open Source?"

Well, the last official I read about it was that nvidia should do the OpenGL implementation.

Graphic card designed for Direct3D?!?

a couple of quotes

"For those who prefer OpenGL, NVIDIA will provide a fully Xbox-enhanced version."
"It appears that the new Doom will be made available for Xbox. iD Software''s John Carmack has said that porting the software will be a "no brainer."
