Hey folks,

Don't know if this is the right forum for this, but.....
I've been working on developing an OpenGL program and just ran into
a portability issue. The program needs to run on PC, HP-UX, and Sun Solaris platforms and coding as such is not a problem but the NCD terminals used by the company require licenses to run OpenGL..$.440.00 per NCD and there over 100 NCDs across the system. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif Does anybody know of a graphics package that is portable across platforms and we won't get kicked in the teeth with these license per NCD issues??? Any information would be helpful

I can only think of Mesa3D. It gives you the source code, and it has already been ported to linux, win32, macos, etc. www.mesa3d.org. (http://www.mesa3d.org.) Its a software-only opengl-clone that for licensing reasons cant claim it's opengl-compliant, it works just like opengl.
