You can create a local account, Microsoft isn't forcing anything cloud related on the user, all they did is integrate Skydrive and they are using it the same way Apple uses iCloud, to keep your settings in the cloud to load onto another machine if you choose. Otherwise, it behaves exactly like Windows 7 in that regard.You only mention one thing that is bad. You don't even mention all the good either.
I personally am not a fan of the new metro cosmetic stuff. Not that important. The usability of the new interface on a desktop comes into question too. I could learn to live with all that too, but why. I have windows 7.
What really gets me is the littler things. How microsoft appears to be trying to lock down the OS. That is why all the game developers freaked out. I also really dislike the cloud integration they are trying. I didn't like how I needed to use my windows live account to log in, but just found out I didn't need to. I am questionable about the windows store but that all depends on if they go apple on us.
Performance was one of the only things that might of been able to sell me onto windows 8. ...but this test shows that to be marginal at best.
Also, other than the store what did they lock down? They've hidden things a bit more but that's it from what I can see.
Anyways, back to on topic. Thanks for the comparison W1zz! You got better results than I did with my laptop, but my testing obviously wasn't as in depth as yours haha.
