Perhaps not out in the open, but behind the scenes in the
infrastructure you will likely find FOSS. Some examples are:
 - EMC uses openSUSE to run its VPLEX software

 - VMWare uses openSUSE for its Vcenter appliance
 - Aruba networks uses CentOS

Consider virtualizing Windows using Boxes or VirtualBox. I do this at
work for all the things I need Windows.
