A point is 1/72" dammit (although there are a number of definitions in that approximate range). It isn't system dependant.

Don't get me started on point and font sizes, it's a massive maze of non-standards and confusion.

Though there is software that doesn't know what resolution the output device is ...

Since almost no-one knows of the points that aren't 1/72nd", I'm hoping that the weird variants (72.72 points/inch, anyone?) will slowly disappear.

Postscript points almost certainly won't (72.29, IIRC).
