Also, although its been freebsd people doing the work, and Microsoft
accepting the patches, the CoreCLR (next gen server .NET runtime) project
is building on FreeBSD, and Microsoft has been very supportive of that.

They've also been contributing to openssl:

They're not perfect. The OS is still closed source, but its a different
Microsoft than when Balmer ran the microsoft armada. I for one can't wait
