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.
