All modern GL features are only available if you use Core Profile, so
you can't mix and match fixed function pipeline usage with modern GL

Linux and Windows the GL drivers support both Core Profile and
backwards compatibility so it's far more flexible for application
developers, you aren't forced to ignore new features or forced to find
replacements for old features.
