The main complaint is speed and looks right?  Well, how about pulling 
out all the stops and going full on 3D rendering using OpenGL via 
GLUT or SDL?  That would shut people the hell up about both.  You 
want to see that array update at hundreds of FPS?  Not a problem. 
You want glowing, translucent baubles in your patch?  Sure go right 

GLUT and SDL are highly portable, work on most platforms, and handle 
windowing, drawing, input devices and events.  What more could you 
want?  Oh yeah, you have a crappy video card... tough!!

My 2 pesos of input of the discussion.
