Microsoft has code in their version that they don't want you to decompile. That is all. Hence the license agreement.
I still use the version from Microsoft on my Mac for personal projects. If I don't want Microsoft to watch what I do with their software I'll compile my own version. Until then, they will continue to update the software based on the usage data they track. Best of both worlds if you ask me.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
