How to build Linux apps w/ Borland C++ Builder X??

P: n/a
This is how I have been doing development forever:
If the target is Unix, I just use telnet and vi from
my Windows PC. No GUI whatsoever.
If the target is Windows, I use Borland C++ or Java IDEs.

Now, I would like to start doing development still from my
Windows PC as a full blown GUI client but the target platform
is for Linux. Before I dig deeper into this, I would like
to hear the experiences of people who have done this.

As you folks know, the Borland C++ Builder X comes with a bunch
of compilers, linkers and debuggers. First of all: how does
that work? Is all the development done locally and the produced
executable is transferred to the target Linux machine?
(in other words, is this a cross-compiler?). Or perhaps the
Windows IDE somehow connects to a remote Linux server which
is the one that actually executes the compiler, linker and
debugger?? I am hoping the latter is the case.

Yes, this is a RTFM question, but I want to hear from those
"in the know".

TIA,
