Mesa /OpenGL

I want to work with OpenGL in Linux. Is the same Mesa that OpenGL for this plataform?..Or is there OpenGL for Linux?..
I don’t understan what’s the difference between OpenGL and Mesa…

Thanks.

Mesa is a GPLed (or maybe LGPLed) implementation of something that looks remarkably similar to the OpenGL API.

http://www.mesa3d.org has all the info

Hope this helps
