I am writing an isometric game with the use of SDL, to be more accurate - The JediSDL for Object Pascal. It is a good library though individual computersettings can always be a problem when
executing the compiled code (my win98 exe which was behaving strangely while my Linux exe on the same PC was OK )

This is something that I think can never be avoided. The same things happens if you switch from DirectX6 to DirectX8.

SDL is the first library that I will use if I need a 'simple' graphic / soundslibrary. After that OpenGL comes to mind but DirectX has just left the building (as a lot of other Micro$oft products lately ;-)
