It depends on your choosen OS. If your developing for Win32 I'd suggest Cpw or the smaller GLFW. There are also some other libraries out there - try a search on google or check the dmoz.org listings. If your developing on something other than win32 GLUT is probably the only choice. This will probably change as there are people working on Unix ports of Cpw which should be out sometime this year.

Regards,
Jim

Almost forgot, SDL is another option.

Just a small (?) correction: GLFW works for X11 aswell (not only Win32). It actually has a few nice features that GLUT lacks (e.g. better fullscreen support under Win32 and Linux), and (at least) the multi threading support in GLFW is more portable than the SDL version, as far as I can tell.
