Microsoft’s European antitrust concerns are growing. German software company Nextcloud made public today that it had filed complaints against the U.S. company with the European Commission and the German competition authority and was planning further action with the French regulator. Nextcloud complained that Microsoft “pushes” its file-hosting service OneDrive in Windows, including by pre-installing the software, giving users free storage and nudging them with pop-up alerts to start using the service. Nextcloud presents itself as a privacy-friendly alternative to OneDrive and other U.S. rivals such as Dropbox and Google Drive, which allow users to store files and access them from different devices.
