Microsoft has something called project ROTOR. If I remember correctly, it runs on FreeBSD and on Mac OS X.

However, project rotor is a very small subset of the .NET Framework and it is severly restrictive on its share source license.

I believe that you mostly can use it in Academia and not commercially. I am no longer a Microsoft employee, so I would not be the best person to give answers about MS intent on that project.
