This might sound irrelevant and it probably is, but I like the fact that
POCO's classes are named thinks like BinaryWriter and DirectoryIterator
instead of b_wtr and dir_itr and so on.
The corresponding methods have also descriptive self-documenting names.

Something else, I downloaded the library, ran the build scripts and it
worked, seamlessly, the very first time. This is not as common as some may
