Moreover, according to wikipedia
"Microsoft was forced to submit the code when it was discovered that Microsoft had incorporated a Hyper-V network driver with GPL-licensed components statically linked to closed-source binaries"
Microsoft is a business that makes business decisions. Skype for Linux is alive because they believe it's good for Microsoft. Office for Linux hasn't happened because Office is intended to be a product that keeps people on Windows, not encourage them to use Linux.
Reading and writing to other file systems is a legitimate, useful, and sometimes essential part of Linux. I suppose you can try to get that changed if you want. And by the way, Microsoft helped make ntfs-3g possible, for which I am grateful.

Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
