Hi, I would like to start programing in GL, I''ve use DirectX alot, but it doesn''t seem to be the best choice for what I''m doing right now.. Anyways, How can I configure the way GL looks on my computer? This is why I ask: On my friend''s Computer, I got this GL Demo and ran it, it went super fast, but looked really bad.. Then, I ran the same demo on My computer, it looked perfect, but ran choppy! we have the generaly same speed computers.. Do I need some type of accelerator? Thanks!

Heh. Yes, you generally need a video card that supports OpenGL acceleration to use OpenGL with both decent speed and decent quality. List the hardware and software that both of the computers have; we can tell you why it runs fast or slow or looks good or bad. Demos are normally meant to be somewhat taxing of your computer and use newer features.
