Because Microsoft pays better. Just business, nothing personal.
During the OOXML, Microsoft was caught red-handed giving bribes to European officials.
When somebody sticks it to Microsoft, Microsoft often uses the same tactic against it's competitors. Remember Europe saying MS had a monopoly? A few bribes later, and viola, MS competitors have a monopoly.
BTW: I think US politicians are even worse.
