France Drops Windows 10 Privacy Case After Microsoft Changes Telemetry Settings

Reader Mark Wilson writes: There have been lots of complaints about invasion of privacy since the release of Windows 10. Microsoft’s telemetry lead to several lawsuits, including one from France’s National Data Protection Commission which said Windows 10 was collecting ‘excessive personal data’ about users.
