The GNU project is not the best source of information about Microsoft, as they are not representing what the majority of users thinks about the company (unfortunately). If we want to convince users to avoid Microsoft we must put on the table independent sources of information, such as the reports from Kaspersky based on extensive research which affirm that 80% of all malware worldwide is carried by Microsoft Office documents (for a reason, as the hidden complexity of those documents makes them very weak and prone to being infected with malicious code).

I am not spreading falsehoods. There are many entries here about Microsoft Office being a malware

Also, a nonfree software is not controlled by its users, and Microsoft Office software are nonfree software. The developer usually uses this power over users to introduce malicious functionalities like surveillance which count as malware.

Does Microsoft Office not spy on its users?
