Well it seems they have or are revealing the source code of windows to governments so that they can see how secure windows is, since many are skeptical.

"The United Kingdom is the latest country to join a Microsoft program that lets international governments see the otherwise secret source code underlying Windows.
Microsoft unveiled the Government Security Program two weeks ago as a way to address concerns various governments have about the security of its Windows operating system. The U.K. government announced its participation Friday.

The program, widely viewed as Microsoft's response to the complete openness of the open-source movement, already includes Russia and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as members."
