The only problem is that it doesn't natively handle fonts, which is

It's not that OpenGL doesn't handle fonts -- it's that it doesn't
handle text at all. This isn't a bad thing, you just have to _want_ to
reinvent the wheel.

Not if you use an existing solution for that purpose...

...but they all SUCK! :)

Do you know of a free graphics library that doesn't? Every one I have looked at has disadvantages.
