But it has its own set of problems. I'm not really dedicated enough, but 
I never managed to cross-compile complex projects (by "complex" I mean 
"with various dependencies on external libraries").
Native is so much easier....once you get the ball rolling (but then the 
same could be said for cross-compiling)
Anyway, it seems that an emulated arm machine, while slower than 
cross-compiling, is faster than the real arm hardware.
