Yes but there are ways to stop at least 90% of that problem in your Settings and opt-out from Microsoft. Not enough people get into the settings and change them.

This is why I'm with the lowly Windows 8.1 just as good but none of the shady stuff

Actually? Windows 10 is much easier to use and it's pretty easy to get rid of them tracking you. The settings format is much better. I also use HitmanPro to rid my unit of any tracking cookies. Actually, Windows 8.1 was the first to use the location tracking.

All major commercial software tracks everything we do. Google is one of the worst.
What can we expect from free software. While Microsoft may track us and use our personal information, we all have the option of not using it on our personal computers. There are other options available to everyone, and most are free. There is the Linux based software, or a TOR browser, etc etc.
If the Dutch don't like it, the Dutch don't have to use it. I doubt if it's going to affect Microsoft's bottom line.
Many of the things people may not like about lack of privacy, they can change in various settings.
