I just want to remind folks that Chris Wilson from Microsoft is a co-chair of HTML5 and spends a lot of time (and Microsoft's money) in the group. I would call this commitment...

Not really Daniel. The case against Microsoft with the EU is very strong
and I don't expect to see Microsoft to win it.

Acid2 is just a start, a step in the right direction.
There's a long way to go before anyone can say that "Microsoft is a
browser vendor that ensures proper support for web standards in their
products".

Where's the support for SVG, XHTML? Is there any commitment to support
(X)HTML5?

And even if IE8 supports these other standards; when will it be
released, and will IE8 be available on XP or just Vista? Or will it be
unbundled from the windows OS altogether?
