    Dis/Advantages of Glut?

    Just wandering, is glut worth using? I wasent aware that you had to have glut32.dll on your computer to run it, which means if i used glut i would need to learn to make install programs to post it on the web for others computers.

    Anyway just curious, i kinda know Win32 so i could learn to deal with it (though i love glut's ease of window management lol). But doesent glut have many other good features?
