I agree.
After developing for sometime a 2D game (able to use both SDL or Allegro) i 
decided to swap to OpenGL and GLUT.
Faster, simpler, more portable.

Watch out that both Allegro and SDL gave me some problems with keyboard 
localization and key repeat, wich GLUT did not.

BTW, even is it uglier and less standard, ALLEGRO got better X11 performances 
than SDL, without any special permission.
