Microsoft does not have "that many" software as open source because of their proprietary nature. Windows Installer XML (WiX) Toolset is one of the first Microsoft's open source software available at the worlds largest development and download repository of open source code, sourceforge.net.
On the same note, Microsoft is producing a MSDN Webcast for a vigorous and candid panel discussion on the uses and implications of open source software in an enterprise environment.
