OpenGL is a 2D/3D graphics API. Pretty much it has the video card draw what you feed it. From the beginning OpenGL was intended to do all of the rendering in hardware, so it expects you to have an OpenGL compliant video card for it to work with good results and speeds. See http://nehe.gamedev.net for some introductory tutorials.
