Not necessarily true. You won't be able to perform any platform specific 
optimizations, but in general cross platform code is not any slower 
than platform specific code. Three examples: NetBSD, Linux kernel, Qt. 
Neither NetBSD nor Linux are considered "slow" by any stretch of the 
imagination. Qt is impresively fast, and is only called "sluggish" by 
biased trolls.
