I used GRAPHICS.H on the ancient Borland Turbo C++ compilers at school, but it didn't work when I tried to bring it home to Visual Studio (because of outdated key words, like _far). As for what I want my graphics to look like, I was thinking something somewhat like Windows, but with the freedom to make some other styles of windows and stuff (for example, Winamp, MusicMatch, Trillian, etc.). I know that right now, these kinds of things are WAY way beyond my ability, but that's the general idea of what I was looking for.
