I second that. I've been using SDL and OpenAL on a project of mine and have 
even been able to cross-compile this for Windows and test it in Wine. Except 
for one initial problem (some DLLs get corrupted by strip) this worked out 
fine. I even compiled most of the DLLs I ship with the with the windows 
binary myself.

I think that though the games I'm working on might also be ported to Windows, 
I'll never do development on Windows just for fun, because most of the stuff 
can be done on Linux, too - and in a much more portable manner by default.
