Hi Joe,

Thanks for the PyGLet recommendation.  I like OpenGL.  Unfortunately, I can't seem to get PyGLet to work, even though the front page claims that "the major 1.2alpha1 release brings pyglet to Python 3."  

I followed the links to this page:

I installed pyglet on my Linux system's Python 3.3 using distutils, as I have done with many other packages.  But I can't run, nor can I even get as far as importing pyglet from my Python 3.3 interpreter command line.  The obstacle is apparently Python 2.x-style print statements, which are found throughout and pyglet/

Does anyone know an efficient way around this problem?  Thanks!
