    You can develop and test apps (with a simulator) for free with the SDK. It costs $100 to publish the app to the app store and test it on actual iPods and iPhones.

    No. You can create an app and test it in the SDK's built in iPhone simulator.
    No. It only works on Macs.
    No. I have no idea what a toolchain is.

    Sorry to ruin your day!

    Toolchain: A toolchain is a set of tools used for development. The word chain derives from the fact that the output of one of the tools is the input of the next tool.

    EXAMPLE:
    gcc -c main.m -o main.o <output is main.o
    gcc -o main.o app <input for next tool is main.o><next output is app
    ldid -S app <input for next tool is app
