I doubt it will actually run on Linux, because then they would also need
a debugger, which then begs for an IDE to make debugging easier. So in
all likelihood, you would need a copy (and license) of Windows to
develop for Linux - just like you need for OSX/iOS development.

Just stick with FPC and have native tools for each platform. I see no
benefit of having Delphi these days. Delphi is outshined by Free Pascal
and Lazarus IDE for some years now.
