I looked at the blog post you pointed out. You should stay away of such
a stupid thing as a blog for hating something. Indeed the blog post is
biased. If you follow the link, you'll find a set of normal questions
from a non-linux game developer, and the first answers that they got are
entirely reasonable. There's not so much to say: SDL is dated but it's
working well. OpenGL is the state-of-the-art 3d graphics library.
That's what i can read in the replies.

And the conclusion is that linux for now may have worse tools, but
you'll surely get the job done.


It is also important to note that hedgehogs do not actually hurt each 
other when they get close to one another. Actually, when living in 
groups, hedgehogs often sleep close to each other.
