That’s just stupid.
When developing software you usually don’t even touch the cpu these days. It simply does not matter if the result is ppc, x86, ARM or what not.
You hit compile or type make and the stuff gets build. Unless you develop drivers there is no reason to even think about what hardware you are compiling for. The only reason you look at the CPU when coding applications is when the build does not work, because you selected the wrong target.
The fun ends or rises when it comes to the OS you are coding on or for. For me turning on Windows is a pain, so doing the same stuff on Linux is ok, while doing it on MorphOS usually is real fun.
Usually I prefer to mix stuff. Code for esp8266, compile on Linux and using FlowStudio on MorphOS to edit the source.
