From my perspective Microsoft are not releasing the most useful code - that of the ASP.NET controls and the Windows Forms Controls.
In Delphi we have been used to having full disclosure of the Windows classes source code. This wasn't used to go out & compete with Borland, but rather to understand what was *really* needed to implement controls and wrappers to make them "hot". The result was many high quality 3rd party components that worked well.
