Is RSSI (received signal strength indication) universal?

Is RSSI strength (0 = awesome wi-fi signal, -100 = no signal) something I'm only going to see on my Mac or is the wireless metric incorporated into other operating systems as well?

You have one on each mobile phone, so no it is nothing universal

How do you mean?  Within Wifi for example?

RSSI is a generic measurement of power which is received by a device.  The metric is used for the same thing in Wifi or mobile technology.
