A coworker of mine uses and likes it a lot.  I've never used it, but use
SDL for pretty much every project.  It's a bit lower-level in some ways
(SDL _itself_ doesn't supply you with much, which in a way is nice), but
there are oodles of helper libraries that you can get... some created by
the SDL creators themselves (SDL_mixer, SDL_image, etc.) and which usually
have the same release cycle as the main SDL lib.

I believe SDL has been ported to more platforms than Allegro.
