    I really hope this means my DefleMask window won't be tiny anymore.

          I use GLFW, and have never seen any evidence that it works in Android or iOS, either in the code, documentation or marketing materials. Please tell me I am missing something.

              I was a PC gamer 10 years ago and I still never heard of the acronym.

                GLFW is older than GFWL.

                GLFW 2.0 was released on 2002, while GFWL was launched on 2007.
