I think that to actually understand Microsoft [or any other huge software player on the market - like Apple, etc] is to realize, that they absolutely don't care about established standards, the way of doing things. They perceive themselves as the pioneers in revolution. Changing the phones into iPhones, changing "user interface experience" from the "old and ineffective" to the "new and effective" with Metro UI, etc. They are so close-minded with their "revolutionary" and not "evolutionary" thinking, that they end up being arrogant and ignorant to everything that didn't come out of their own minds. They simply believe that this will give them more money.
The best way to change is is actually to not use it. That's the only type of pressure they will understand. Vote with you own wallets. If you buy something, if you click on EULA - you are in fact AGREEING to all of this nonsense, whether it's Microsoft, Apple, Google, or anything else.
