Windows Vista's development tools use cross-platform standards, so you can use them to write normal apps that will run on multiple platforms or Web-based apps with multiple browser support. Also, new security features planned for the Vista version of Windows Server will include an automatic patch check and a file system that can fix itself, Microsoft said. Watch some videos of Vista here.

I'll believe they care about cross-platform when OpenGL get's first class (or even second class) status.

See the sticky news item at http://www.opengl.org/ for more.

Can you stop your ridiculous trolling please? OpenGL is a cross platform development standard. Since the topic is about Microsoft's oh-so wonderful use of cross-platform development standards (of which OpenGL is uncategorically one), and OpenGL is certainly in the ball-park of Avalon regarding functionality, you cannot get more on-topic than that.

Stop trying to desperately make Microsoft look good on this. You can't.
