The problem is not GPL. Lots of entities in the world are using GPL because it fits with their business model. In case of Microsoft, GPL doesn't fit with their business. The problem is making sure the GPL doesn't creep, unintentionally, into their code base. There are solutions out there (we use Protecode, but there are others) that make sure code base is kept clean and the company's IP policy is not inadvertently violated, avoiding a Linksys/Cisco/GPL type scenario.
