General Development Dust off your he's-a-Microsoft-fanboy complaints, people, because here's yet another story praising the Redmond software giant (sorry). In case you were wondering what the Xbox Live integration on Windows Phone 7 Series (inhale, signified by a comma), meant, then Eric Rudder (what's in a name), Microsoft's Senior Vice President of Technical Strategy, has the answer for you - and it's pretty impressive.

Nope - It's not even cross-platform. It's cross-device!

Cross-platform would be something like working on Windows, OSX, Linux and Solaris etc. As far as I understand it is all the same code base.

If MS would demonstrate code that would work on all platforms (e.g. different code bases) like Java, I would be more impressed. At this moment it is only working on Microsoft software. That rules out a LOT of other devices running non-Microsoft software.

So - I am not impressed at all...
