FPC has compilers for many platforms.  GTK has been ported to win32
(there's a working version of gimp for win32) via a set of dll's.  The fpc
gui examples which use gtk compile under both win32 and linux, assuming you
have the libraries/dll's installed.  I got an earlier version of lazarus to
compile and run under win32 a few weeks ago.  As long as lazarus is careful
about the units used (like the linux unit) it can be a cross-platform tool.

In a nutshell, it's possible to use fpc/gtk right now for win32/linux
development.  When lazarus is more mature, it should be a lot easier.

I've been getting the hang of gtk programming the past week and should have
some example code available shortly if anyone wants it.
