General Development The final ISO ballot on C++0x closed on Wednesday, and we just received the results: Unanimous approval. The next revision of C++ that we've been calling "C++0x" is now an International Standard! Geneva will take several months to publish it, but we hope it will be published well within the year, and then we'll be able to call it "C++11."

You should do some research, before bashing Visual C++ blindly. While they are not the best, they are actually in top-3 in C++0x standards compliance:

And do not forget that Herb Sutter (lead software architect in Visual C++ group) used to be the head of the ISO C++ standards committee for many many years. He has done significant work to change the culture in the company.
