No idea.

OpenGL doesn't seem to be something you can just jump into though. There are a ton of parameters and functions that need to be setup before you can draw anything on the screen. If you wanted to switch to C, I'd recommend the OpenGL: Programming Guide from Addison Wesley. It will give you all the setup code and you can start right away on blind faith and then slowly learn how to write an OpenGL program yourself.
