Short answer: yes you could, if you know how to. I had made it for some
apps. Look at Inkscape ( for an example of what you could
expect in Windows with gtk/gtkmm. There has been some bugs with screen
redraw and windows stack order. 
There is no (I dont know if exist) a "dont need to change a single line
of code" solution though. Mainly because Windows is not fully POSIX
compliant (file names and so).
WxWidgets uses gtk for Linux, I suppose it uses win32 in Windows.

Personally, my own reason is to control 100% of my program.
