A long time ago I tried compiling Lazarus natively on the N900 (Maemo),
it didn't work due to some arm resource compiling problems. 
As cross compiling work like a charm, I did not try for some time.
Now with a recent trunk of fpc and lazarus, Lazarus compiles and runs
on the device. The advantage of Maemo is that it is a fairly standard
Linux (debian based, apt-get install whatever) 
with a Qt source compatible with Desktop Qt.

Nevertheless Lazarus on the device is not usable due to the many windows
of Lazarus that all get maximized and some other small problems.
Lazarus can compile and run the default application project.

program/window switcher)
