Ehem. Let me restate my observation. Yes OpenGL is THE
standard graphics rendering API, no doubt. However,
OpenGL drivers being installed and OpenGL hardware
acceleration is still unfortunately not guaranteed on
each windows machine. Trust me I'd love it if everyone
had decent cards and updated drivers, but I'm making a
smallish 2D game so that may be asking too much. If it
were a full 3D game I'd have no reservations about
requiring OpenGL.
