You should take a look at wxWindows (

I departed the MFC world looking for something cross-platform and
found wxWindows. I've very mature and much better designed then MFC.

The only problem is that it is written in the "Netscape" version of
cross-platform C++ - ie. only features supported by all C++
compilers. But I don't think this is still necessary, as it isn't
used on any really obscure platforms (OS/2 is probably as obscure as
it gets - does OS/2 have an adequate C++ compiler?).
