Hi :)

How to hide a application window ( not console ) on start (this created by al_create_display), and then show it.
It is possible by allegro?

Ok, windows... but linux?

Or eventually minimize window...

You may try to initialize the window outside of desktop... yeah I know that's bad solution, but Allegro doesn't seem to implement any of such functionality.

I always wondered why Allegro has a way to get the window handle on Window, OSX and I think even iOS but not Linux...
