They did take some source code for the BSD TCP/IP stack,
and there was at least one tool ( it wasn't all that major
a tool, but I don't remember the name; it had something
to do with XML) that they released into Open Source.
So yeah, Microsoft is a major player in open source. :-)
Sort of. One has to squint.
