a beginners question that may require expert knowledge

This borders on cross-posting and I will never do it again however, I just made a post to “OpenGL coding: beginners” titled

“OpenGL as foundation for windowing system”

because I am a beginner with OGL.

However, I suspect that to answer my question it will require expert knowledge of how OpenGL works.

I apologize if this is inappropriate, and I thank you if you answer my post.
