    I think there is more chance that M$ will deprecate this wrapper effort, then forbid GPU vendors supply OpenGL drivers. M$ != Apple, which stuck at OpenGL 4.1 on macOS and is deprecated in flavor of Metal since 2018 major release of macOS, 10.14 (Mojave). And there is mostly no third-party GPU drivers in Apple world, because they ship a complete OS that supports almost all previous Macs. As a reminder they were really serious on deprecating 32-bit apps, so since 10.15 (Catalina):

    They even dropped iPhoto, which is still downloadable from AppStore, but unusable on 10.15+ because it's not ported to x86_64. Instead, M$ ships a lot of legacy code. Their multi-arch implementation, SysWOW64 is a copy of almost all system libs built for x86_32.
