Open GL development program

Are there any programs available that allow a user to quickly and easily create OpenGL programs?

I am used to opening up a terminal(LINUX) and creating new files, building them and running them. Is there an easier way? Is there a program like MS Visual Basic in which most of the low level stuff is done using a mouse to choose what I want to display?

Uh… there are 8 forums for programming in OpenGL. There is 1 forum for end-users of OpenGL.

With a 1/9 chance of getting it wrong. What do you think just happened?
