    :

    Visual C++ already comes with the OpenGL headers, they're in a subdir called 'gl' I think, so it would be:
    #include gl/gl.h
    #inlcude gl/glu.h
    #inlcude gl/glaux.h

    And as for the OpenGL vs DirectX thing well ... OpenGL is easier to learn, but is a bit more demanding of your Graphics hardware.
    When you mean all computers, do you mean cross-platform ? Because DirectX is Windows only, while OpenGl is supported on most Operating Systems (easy to port code, especially if you use a lot of 'standard c++').
