Open gl on windows

Im very new to open gl just started to learn it at uni, and we use unix machines at uni with all library files and everything set up for us already, but wanted to work on it at home but havent got microsoft visual but have downloaded devc++ and was wondering whether i am able to use that to code very simple open gl programs? Any help much appreciated. andy

There are even sample Opengl projects within devc++.

I also recommend dowloading GLFW, there should be a devpak for Dev-C++ available. GLFW is a wonderfully simple OpenGL framework, much better and more modern than GLUT. GLFW is also available for MacOS, Linux and other Unix variants, so using it makes your code very portable between platforms without any changes.
