I want to know if GLU can be used on other console than windows ?
is it good to use it if I want my game to be easy to port on other OS ?

Hi !

GLU is just a utility library to OpenGL, it has nothing to do with the platform you run on, I think you mean GLUT maybe ?

If that is the case, then yes GLUT is available for most OSes Win32, UNIX, Mac and so on.

So if you do use GLUT you can expect your application to be pretty platform independent, but it all depends on what you want to do with your application, GLUT is good for games and things without to much GUI stuff, but there are of course libraries that add GUI support to GLUT also (GLUI just to name one).
