Microsoft is forced to unbundle Teams in the EU, just over two years after Slack was acquired by Salesforce. It seems so late for that kind of move given that Microsoft already disrupted the innovator in that space. As Casey Newton noted when the deal was announced:

But the 4 million users it had at the time would increase to just 12 million four years later, while Microsoft — which added Teams to its 365 bundle without increasing the price — took Teams from zero to 115 million users.

No one brandishes the cudgel of Office like Microsoft.
