I dunno about patents, but don't current Intel graphics chipsets offer fully documented free drivers with a full OpenGL implementation, and great 2D graphics performance with video playback? And for the price of an OGP card, you can get TWO laptops with Intel built-in graphics. Plus, the 3D performance in Intel chips, while it certainly wont blow your wig away, seems to be way ahead of what the OGP project is planning.
In all, I think it is highly unlikely the OPG will ever succeed. I wish them lots of fun and learning, and hope they don't waste too much money.
