- and Unix systems (Linux, Mac OS X). As the library grows up, support
- for more operating systems will be added.
-* Object-oriented
- SFML is written in C++ and provides an efficient, object-oriented
- design. It relies on standard patterns and idioms to provide a simple
- and robust framework.
-* Easy to use
- SFML aims at being easy to manipulate. Effort is put on internal code
- to provide the simplest public interface.
-* Flexible
- Instead of being one big API, SFML rather contains a lot of small
- packages, that can be chosen and combined according to the intended
- usage. You can use only the base package to get input and windowing,

-* Easily integrable
- SFML can be used in one or more windows, and/or can be integrated in
