    honestly no

    It can be a good start but i found it a waste of time, if you understand basic WinAPI (which you're going to want to know anyway) DDraw isn't bad. SDL on the other hand some (mainly Linux) companies use for professional games (or porting).

    SDL site - libsdl.org

    Use OpenGL - Allegro just is an encapsulation of OPENGL AND DirectX depending on which platform your using.

    Anyone with a Graphics Card will support OpenGL and many support DirectX.
