Seems maybe useful for Windows users that are switching over to the RPi?

Though why not just compile under Raspbian?

The compilation this way seemed really fast, while if you compile it on the raspberry pi i read that it could take about 12h 30 min

It can, depending on options, and compiler. Though I doubt it would take anywhere near that long on a Raspberry Pi 3B, with everything running in RAM for the compile (as in NOT having to access the mass storage device [SD-Card/USB HDD/USB Flash/etc]), I do not think it would take more than an hour if the RPi is correctly set up for the compile (on an RPi 3B).

Remember that in most cases a larg part of the compile time is writing and reading files, so working from RAM greatly speeds things up.

Just setup a RAM disk and give it a try, if it is fast enough for you it may be an option, if not use your old no longer needed PC.
