It’s a matter of compatibility, 90% of the world does everything in msoffice. Libre office is is nice but not 100% compatible, or even as good in all honesty. There is free office and and a couple others that are a little better. But Linux has nothing to compare to the combo of word, excel, outlook(evolution is pretty darn close),powerpoint, share point, teams, active directory and the tight knit integration between it all. And there are a ton of other things that fall into the ecosystem beyond that list.

I myself am not dependent on them, but Linux doesn’t have anything that comes close for a major enterprise user.
