Hi. Ms office Is not malware, but issues are clear about Company, products, us law and so on. See:
https://www.computerworld.com/article/2881635/eu-parliament-blocks-new-outlook-apps-over-privacy-concerns.html

I wouldn't Say they sell bloatware, but they control you, create d├ępendance and use unfair 
policies. You can even read about pyramid spyware and NSA.

the situation is way more complex than it seems.

A few facts:

1. MS Office documents carry 80% of all malware worldwide

2. MS Office documents do not follow the OOXML pseudo-standard, as 
approved by ISO

3. The OOXML pseudo-standard breaks several ISO standards, such as the 
Gregorian calendar and the language codes

4. MS Office ODF implementation is poor, because the way MS Office 
manages XML schemas is completely different from the XML standard, and 
in some cases - such as comments - doesn't make it possible to support 
the ODF standard

5. Microsoft C-Fonts, which have been emulated by Croscore fonts (my 
blog post is mostly about Croscore fonts), have been deprecated for MS 
Office 2021, and will be replaced by a new set of proprietary fonts 
(which will break interoperability, again)

I would never affirm that Microsoft supports open standards, on the 
contrary they develop the most sophisticated strategies to break open 
standards (and they unfortunately succeed).

Microsoft office is certainly not malware. It serves no purpose to spread
falsehoods. From previous messages in this thread Microsoft are doing more
than most to support open standards with their participation in Oasis.

The interoperability issue for me is around Microsoft Office document
fidelity on non Microsoft platforms.

I think every time we receive a word document from someone, we should
make them aware about the interoperability issues and tell them
Microsoft Office is a nonfree software which is a malware.

If some people switch to LibreOffice, that would be a real change.
Whether people listen or not, I keep speaking about these issues and
some of them do switch to LibreOffice or free software in general.
