learning opengl on pi

Fri Sep 19, 2014 12:24 am

I'm interested in learning opengl, but my desktop PCs have gpu heating issues. Is it viable to start learning opengl on a pi? If so, where do I start? I have intermediate c++ skills, and I find overly ambitious projects the best learning experiences. Is opengl es much different from desktop gl? Thanks!

Plus differences between OpenGL versions and implementations in various GPU drivers.
