    I've got some experience with it. If you have any questions or need any help just let me know.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?

    It's a multimedia API similar to DirectX. It's a much simple API though and uses OpenGL for the 3D portion of it. It doesn't have built in libraries for text, networking or some other features but some kind people have created add on libraries for use with SDL. So it's pretty much got everything you need.
    Many Linux game developers use it and it's a cross-platform API so you can develop games for Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac.
    I think it's very easy to start using.

    after i'm done messing around with console i think i'll move on to that, because the games i create are going to be free and open source, so the ability to make Linux workable versions is great.

    (don't you mean "SDL || Win32"? i'm sure that you don't want the bitwise OR there. [sorry, couldn't resist])

    hey.. I've written a bit of SDL in my experience

    It is a nice language.. you using SDL_ttf?? I love that extension.. it makes font use easier than on DirectX.

    I know DirectX, allegro, and SDL, as well as a bit of old-school assember based (mode x) graphics, I really think SDL has a few major advantages over all others.
