I use SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) which does everything you would need a windowing/input-gathering library to do.

There are plenty of other options, of course... but it sometimes depends on what other libraries you are using. I'm assuming you're not using DirectX if you're going cross-platform.

Wxwindows is an cross platform opensource c++ gui framework that gives most of the same capabilities of mfc. In fact, it predates mfc by a few years.

Guys: How the HELL is SDL a replacement for MFC??

Try the following:
Qt (not sure about Win32 port, actually)
Gtk (definitely a good choice)
wxWindows (also a good choice)

sidenote: wxWindows is now wxWidgets, courtesy of Microsoft''s legal department.

wxWidgets also uses Win32 under Windows and GTK under *nix. GTK apps can look nice on *nix with the right theme (mmm...Ximian Industrial), but look like ass on Windows. This way your apps will fit into whatever system they are run on.
