    That cuts down about 80% of your options.

    DOS programming is old, difficult, impractical, and for most purposes dead.

    You could try SDL or OpenGL... those are platform independent so you don't have to learn Windows, although OpenGL isn't very easy to learn for the beginner. And I don't imagine it'll make your life any easier to not learn Windows.
    Just Google It. √
