Network popup notification messaging apps

I am lookg fora network popup message notification app that can be used on both Macs and Windows clients.  I am looking for an app that that listen for messages that I post from a server somewhere.

Also, the users should not have to login to the app to work, I would either config it with the necessary settings or it uses the logged on users credentials for SSO.

Anyone have any ideas out this of a product (preferably opensource) that works like this?

I may have spoken too soon. In case you try the Growl route, please note the following from http://www.growlforwindows.com/gfw/help/forwarding.aspx:
Forward from Growl on a Mac to Growl for Windows
At this time, Growl for the Mac does not support forwarding to non-Mac clients. Growl/Mac uses Cocoa's Distributed Objects to handle its forwarding, which is a Mac-only technology. A new version of Growl/Mac is in development that uses the same GNTP protocol as Growl for Windows, so notifications will be able to be forwarded in either direction.

I do note, however, that it says "forwarding to non-Mac clients" as opposed to "forwarding between Mac and non-Mac clients".

If it's not Mac AND Windows compatible, I don't want it :)
