The .lib (or .a) files are compiled object code. If you try and use the headers on their own, it is like trying to make an entire program with just the prototypes defined in headers and no actual code to go along with them. You should link the .lib rather than compiling the library into your source yourself, as it may have been compiled under a different environment (#define, asm etc).

It runs on Windows but it is a Linux program. All of the development for it is done on Linux (by about 5 guys), then it is cross compiled for Windows as an afterthought. What I said has nothing to do with Linux itself but rather that you said "alternative programs" are not as good (as Windows only programs?) and this is clearly not the case, because there are many examples of Linux programs that are significantly better than Windows-only programs.

Blender is an "alternative" to 3dsmax. Now, personally, I can't stand the interface to it at all, but in terms of what it can do it is just as good as 3dsmax. See http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/ which was modelled in Blender and then encoded to video with x264 (another Linux "alternative" program, from the same people as VLC).
