I''m a newbie. I was wondering what people used for their windows (generic not necesarily MS). Do many people use a specialized MFC app with a primary window? How often is the OpenGL GLUT windowing used? Is there a way to get simple windows and mouse input from a basic console program? any answers appreciated. RELIGION IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

For games, plain Win32 API function calls. MFC, while nice, might add too much complexity and adversely affect efficiency.
