Small companies (smaller than Microsoft) don't always shield you from huge things and don't always give you control over your project. It so happens that while I am not working for Google, I'm working on the guts of Android, which is no small thing and you can forget about controlling it. :)

It looks like it has at least one big security problem (already in the news). Other than that I don't know for sure and can only speculate.

You don't have to have special backdoors. I'm fairly certain, the agencies have Windows source code and the necessary tools to find and exploit the existing vulnerabilities and so does the hacking community (except for the Windows source code, I'd presume, although in theory there could be leaks from the users of the Microsoft academic programs, through which you can get the code).
