Is OpenGL available on Linux? I know there''s a clone out there called Mesa... what''s the deal with that? What''s the difference between the two? "You TK''ed my chicken!"

To answer the latter question, Mesa3D is a graphics library that just about completely emulates OpenGL and is also cross platform. The reason it is not an "official" OpenGL implementation is because its creators don't want to pay to call it one. However, it also does not make use of hardware in all situations. You can read more about it here.

OpenGL is available for Linux, but I don't know any specifics.
