The biggest one is that Windows does not emulate super VGA modes in
a window but instead puts them into the full screen.

Then make them full screen and see who really gives a care. If you
want to write programs that run in windows,
then write programs that run in Windows.
If you're willing to abandon 808x and 286 machines, I'd suggest the
portable multimedia library Allegro:
Write once, compile on several 32-bit C compilers such as GCC, DJGPP,
Watcom C++, MS Visual C++, Mingw32, RSXNTDJ, Borland C++Builder, and
soon BeOS with little or no code changes. The GNU Pascal-to-C
converter may help here.
