GNU, GPL, Open Source In a move that shows just how far Microsoft has come, and how pervasive open-source software is in certain areas, the software powerhouse is, for the first time, including open-source technology in one of its shipping products. Microsoft plans to include the Message Passing Interface in its Windows Server 2003 Compute Cluster Edition, which went to public beta this week at the Microsoft Developers Conference here and is on track to ship in the first half of next year.

Member since:

even the ftp client in Windows 95 onwards is from BSD; and nearly all of SFU has seen OpenBSD code at some time

This is so far from the first product they've shipped with OSS code its not even an excusable mistake to make. As someone said above, they've even used GPL code (legally)
