Intel 3150 officially doesn't support OpenGL 2.0 for Windows. However I read it can for Linux?
Is there some miracle way to get the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator to support OpenGL 2.0 in Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit)?
Is OpenGL support *really going to help you in any way whatsoever?
Looking at the Intel site for that chipset it looks like the Windows drivers are circa 2010 while the Linux ones are late last year. The chipset is already pretty old so it's not surprising Intel discontinued development on them a couple of years ago.
It looks to me as if Intel have basically abandoned the drivers.
If the Linux drivers from Intel do indeed support OpenGL 2.0 then it is entirely possible that the Windows drivers could be resurrected and given support, but there is almost no reason at all for Intel to support that line anymore.
Chances are that to get the drivers certified as working in Windows 7/8 Intel would have to pay some amount of money to Microsoft so that it doesn't come up with a warning when installing the drivers, this is something that simply isn't necessary with Linux.
It is probably a combination of those sort of factors that are preventing Intel from releasing updated drivers, time, effort and money make it simply not worthwhile for a small and aging user-base that simply aren't going to see enough of a benefit to be worth the cost.
For those who have Intel Graphics, the only way is drivers, but Windows 7 drivers, just won't work!
