Wy does freeglut use 'freeglut.h' instead of 'glut.h'?
This seems just to make compatibility with GLUT harder (well, not THAT

How much good is OpenAL?
Is the project still under developement, or is it near to death?

Any suggestion on what's the best way to obtain sound while using GLUT?
(I'd try SDL...)

I'm getting annoyed with all this portability.
My next game will be Linux-only.
I'll spend efforts to ensure non-compatibility with w32...
(Extensive use of pipe()/socketpair() should do it...)
