You haven't read the EULA for Microsoft software.  It explicitly states
that documents created with MS Word, for example, may *NOT* be viewed
with any non-M$ product.  When combined with the fact that Microsoft also
reserves the right to revoke your EULA for any number of trivial infractions
(created for the sole purpose of allowing them to threaten you with
license revocation), this in fact means "anything you create with M$
word is property of Microsoft, not you":
