You have no idea how much effort went into getting this stupid white square on the screen.

If this one hell of a lede doesn't get your attention, nothing will.

You guys do realise that this guy is Ryan C Gordon. Of Icculus.org fame. The guy who has single handedly ported more games to Linux than anyone else has. He started out at Lokigames.com and worked on Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and Descent 3. This guy is a total legend in Linux/cross platform game development. He and Sam Lantinga (they collaborated on libSDL's creation) are 99% of the reason why Linux can even run games now. A lot of his written works are brilliant. He has some really good write ups of what porting an MFC application to GTK/Linux is like. Highly recommended reading for cross platform developers, especially in games.
