lately I've been thinking that using a general game sdk and attaching opengl to
it via glx would be the best route in terms of ease, capability, and
portability. The sdk I've been thinking of personally is sdl, as it's very
light and in C. clanlib and plib are c++ and both utilize opengl (clanlib just
added the gl target). I'm sure there are plenty of other sdk's that have ogl
support or can be bound to ogl... :) just a matter of finding time to wade thru
them and seeing which ones fit your needs, then choosing which ones feels best
for you, which is something you need to decide yourself :) (oh yeah, if I don't
mention crystal space, jorrit will post saying it can do everything ;)

typos are typos, no matter what your background ;) but typos happen,
