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.

Well, one theory can be that notch doesn't like windows 8...
