I'm using VC++ a la VS 2008, when I use it these days (which is never). I've used a bit of gcc for Linux, but which flavor depended on which version came native with whatever version of Linux I was on at the time.

However, about this portability framework. I've always found it wasn't the compiler flavors that were the problem, but the libraries. For compilers, pick the most common C++ compiler on each OS, and write to the oldest C++ standard they will all compile.
We can program with only 1's, but if all you've got are zeros, you've got nothing.
