Garrett Serack: Open Source Development at Microsoft : The Common Opensource Application Publishing Platform (CoApp)
Was just about to post this when I found your post, I too am optimistic that there will finally be a sane easy way to deploy and hopefully configure open source software on a Windows network.

Certainly if it is used on OS products I will consider them much more seriously for deployment on the networks that I manage.
