I'm not an expert (in complete honesty), but i think microsoft is free to contribute to mono's development as long as they contribute it under i believe it is the mit/x11 license, which may or may not be desirable to them.

I also have heard that as far as moonlight goes, the silverlight equivalent for linux like platforms which i think is based on mono, I am pretty sure i heard microsoft did make a contribution as far as providing unit tests or something to that extent.

I dream that Windows users and programmers were so "open" as Linux users. that's why I became interested in .NET and C#. I'm interested in cloud computing solutions too, so I know Windows Azure, where developers using Windows platform have an easier life...
