Yes - when you compile your applications using the cross compiler. The
crosscompiler wiki page explains it all. I have successfully created
Windows 32bit .exe files from my Linux system.

The cross compiler (ppcross386) is still a Linux executable though, but
the project compiled with that compiler is a native Windows executable.

Pretty neat! :-)
