That might be true however with their move to charing per core will make scaling it up an awful lot more expensive.

That may be true, but it isn't an argument that Microsoft should switch to an open source core for Windows. They charge those prices because they can, and their customers are (at least most of them, most likely) willing to pay it. If they saved money by using more open source they aren't going to pass the savings on to you.
