An example C# program that uses OpenTK. Displays a colored triangle.
// C# example program to demonstrate OpenTK
// Steps:
// 1. Create an empty C# console application project in Visual Studio
// 2. Place OpenTK.dll in the directory of the C# source file
// 3. Add System.Drawing and OpenTK as References to the project
// 4. Paste this source code into the C# source file
// 5. Run. You should see a colored triangle. Press ESC to quit.
