Microsoft "InformationWeek recently interviewed Bill Hilf, Microsoft's leading light on open source issues. Since coming to Microsoft from IBM in 2003, Hilf has been inextricably involved with Microsoft's strategy for dealing with Linux. He's recently been appointed general manager of Windows Server marketing and platform strategy, which means he's taking on an expanded role, but open source is still one of his core issues."

Just because he's the "open source expert" at Microsoft doesn't take away from the fact that his role is centered on marketing. Whatever he says is ultimately geared towards marketing Windows, using salesmen tactics, but in this case flavored for the more technical minded.
