The Tor team wants 'free software' not Microsoft

Access to source code and ability to modifity source
code is one of the main legs of 'free software' and
not allowed by Microsoft.

Please read this page for a great definition of 'free

From the site:
Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to 
run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve 
the software. More precisely, it refers to four 
kinds of freedom, for the users of the software:

* The freedom to run the program, for any purpose
(freedom 0).

* The freedom to study how the program works, and 
adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the
source code is a precondition for this.

* The freedom to redistribute copies so you can 
help your neighbor (freedom 2).

* The freedom to improve the program, and release 
your improvements to the public, so that the 
whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to 
the source code is a precondition for this.
