You don't hang around OpenGL.org do you?

Whether I do or don't is irrelevant - address what I got wrong or shut up.

It is relevant, since your argument revolved around a supposed "programmer's perspective." So one would assume than in order to provide that perspective, you should at the very least be a programmer in that view/line of work. Thus, making you visiting opengl.org very much pertinent to the task at hand.

Apple's OpenGL implementation is not as stable as you make it sound.

There are quite a few driver issues that you can easily find being discussed on the Mac section of OpenGL.org.

Plus Apple chooses to ignore many standard APIs, providing instead its own extensions, with its own set of quirks.

This leads to developers that want to target Windows, Linux and MacOS X to have an MacOS X code path in addition to what most have already to provide for Intel, ATI and NVidia.

What are these extensions and what are they used for?
