I totally understand and appreciate your viewpoint on this @Mbfrenchbulldogs
I too would like to have had Samsung Cloud still back up my pictures.
I always used Dropbox anyway as a secondary back up.
I tried OneDrive and it just wasn't for me as it didn't seem to seamlessly sync like Samsung Cloud does.
Samsung gives the following information samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/changes-to-gallery-sync-samsung-cloud-drive-and-premium-storag... but don't explain why.
Possibly they've come to some agreement with Microsoft and OneDrive !

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.
Samsung and Microsoft have been collaborating for a litle while really and both companies seem to think it makes business sense. In fact not many cloud services are profitable, however may not always have a harmonious relstionship. Some information here : https://inf.news/en/tech
I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
