"Every developer of Microsoft technologies has come across Win32 Application Programming Interface [API] and the Principle API of all the Microsoft windows operating systems. But in upcoming versions of Microsoft Operating Systems, such as Windows Vista, Win32 API will no longer be the principal API."

This is not true. The number of new Win32 APIs in Vista/Server 2008 indicate that contrary to what you are claiming, there is a lot of new work/innovation going on with respect to native code and programming models.

Also please refer any code that runs outside the CLR as "native" code. Unmanaged is not the right way to describe it as most languages ( have ways (better?) to handle their state, not to mention memory and resources.
