There is conflict of interest between Microsoft and other OSes, so I find it hard to believe anything that puts Microsoft and cross-platform in the same sentence.

Since flash is silverlight's biggest competitor, and not an operating system, since flash is cross-platform, it would be in Microsoft's best interest to have os parity to flash.

Though, I'd call cross-platform support for silverlight a joke currently, without Linux support.
