I just got windows 8 and when I went to open minecraft I got this error.

Bad video card drivers!

Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

A good idea would be to read this thread I found on the Windows 8 forums. It says solved in the tab-bar thing, and it's the exact same problem, so whatever the answer on that thread is should work.
