Learning CS by Programming Games!

I just found this great author, Jonathan Harbour.  Take a look at his site and look at all his cool books.  I've been reviewing hisBeginning Game Programing 1st ed which focuses on Windows programming with Visual C++ and DirectX 9.04.  I think his thrid edition has new projects and uses Allegro instead of DirectX.  

Allegro is supposed to be cross-platform.  This is good as I am actually looking for something like this that I can use with Linux! I'd rather not shell out money for Windows compilers if I don't have to.  Maybe I'll look at his Beginning Java 5 Game Programming.

Teaching with Technology,
