ASP.NET frameworks are not transferred to the community, they just 
opened the source and applied the Apache license. Microsoft still has to 
approve every patch.
Adobe did that with Flex way back in 2008.
AFAIK the problem with Adobe was that it didn't have well established 
model (and resources) for accepting community requests and code. Maybe 
MS will be able to handle that with more success...

of Adobe's handling of Flex.  Pretty much sums up how badly Adobe botched it.
