    OpenGL is available on all the platforms you mentioned, and hence, probably the one you'll want to look into.

    www.opengl.org
    nehe.gamedev.net

    *edit*
    I've done very little graphics programming (and it was in OpenGL). I have no knowledge of SDL and limited knowledge of DirectX, so keep that in mind when reading my comments.

    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Oh, is that what he was asking?

    In that case...

    The DirectX SDK is downloadable on one of Microsoft's websites... Try Googling it. Nehe, as Zach posted, is probably one of the best OpenGL tutorial sites.


    That was a pretty good recovery for my jerky remark :P

    because we dont have a game programming forum.

    and because our mainpage doesnt have opengl tutorials.

    and we dont have a large thread of links for just this.

    btw im being a wise ass, we have all of that. Search.

    Simple answer:

    Buy some books.


    www.amazon.com

    To see what you might want to read or what would be a good read:
    www.gamedev.net -> books

    Read and practice. Don't be afraid to write stupid programs that don't do anything.

    SDK means software development kit, and generally refers to a library that you can use to add functionality to your program, for example, graphics.
