yeh the iMacs with thunderbolt have "target display" mode, so you can use it as a monitor for thunderbolt display output.. however i dont think the thunderbolt port on the new PCs are going to output display... its really just a port for the PCI-E bus

its not owned by apple, its intel tech... licensed exclusively to apple for a year, now thats up

who knows, maybe some pc mobos might try to output display
I dunno, I'd never heard of thunderbolt until recently, and I still am not sure as to what it can do.
But here's a link as to what mobos have it onboard and what can have it added:

Looks like windows supports it with display minus a couple features

you can even get some features of Apple's Thunderbolt Display working if you're willing to accept a lack of pre-supplied software brightness controls and USB support.

Also looks like the thunderbolt add in card from asus has a loop through a displayPort to support the display that way through the thunderbolt port
