Microsoft might not be the One and Only Evil Empire that it once was, but it’s still Evil-with-a-Capital-E, and it’s still definitely an Empire-with-a-Capital-E.

Just because Google and Oracle are also Evil Empires that must now be contended with, doesn’t necessarily make Microsoft any less Evil.

The enemy of my enemy is not always my friend.

As for Microsoft stealing from other companies and other OSes, where’s the news in that?  They’ve been doing that for … how many decades?

If continuing to hate Microsoft makes me a nut in your book, then I’m fine with that.  In that case, I think that I would rather be a nut.
