hi all, i am looking to develop my first game, the same old TETRIS; but rather than using GLUT for windowing/key, I would like to use SDL assuming I may add sounds/networking once i get my basic version done. any comments on my thoughts? ~boyd

It is my understanding that GLUT wasn't even developed for making games. It was only for "proof-of-concept" OpenGL examples, thus making it much less powerful and practical than SDL. I've been using SDL since I started my project and I absolutely love it. :)

If you're making a 2d tetris, you won't even need OpenGL to begin with, SDL alone will do just fine.

If you still want to use OpenGL, it's very easy to use with SDL, so I would recommend it :)
