I believe you know about Kylix, which is Delphi clone on linux. Delphi IDE is 
windows only, as Kylix IDE is linux only as well, but not the code. As long as 
we don't use OS specific API (windows or linux), Delphi code is cross platform 
(windows and linux). :)

This is also applied on FPC, not all FPC libraries are cross platform, though 
most of them are. This is also applied on every compiler and language, except 
Java maybe. It depends on your code, is it targetting a specific platform or for 
all platforms?
