Ok, I'm making ogl since a time, creating my ogl window, stuff, bla bla bla, directInput or WinAPI for inputs, etc. But does glut is better? I know its portable, but witch is faster? I dont think john carmack used glut for is QuakeIII engine based on opengl. lol But what about glut? Is it just for Education Purpose? Thanks

For speed and flexibility, use the Win32 API and OpenGL. You won't get very far past basic demos with GLUT. It is only for educational use.

Would SDL be suitable for a commercial game, or would it always be preferable to use the API of the target OS?

Sdl is fine. I know for the linux ports of alot of games they use sdl.
