I can't say. But even if it were, I'd guess most here would rather work
under Unix-like OS.

Nothing wrong with cross compiling, really. Get full power of any
necessary GNU utilities, editors, etc. in their "native environment."
The only trouble is getting mingw, library dependencies, etc. set up in
the first place, and having a standard build image or Live CD is one
possible solution to that problem.
