"Pie in the Sky Drive" out here...

Agree with the previous post. I have a brand new high speed laptop for processing photographs. I need Photoshop, a spreadsheet and Word or Word Perfect. All of my software MUST work without internet access. I'm home once per month or less during seven months of every year. Most areas where I work do not have a data signal and many do not have cell. Forget that "subscription model" because that won't be happening.

In the USA mountain west The Cloud or Sky Drive should be called "Pie-in-the-Sky" because it's not up to the challenge. If MS wants to force the Cloud concept they need to make it universally available.

My machine has Win-8 but it doesn't call that tiled first screen "Metro" it refers to it as the "Windows Experience" so maybe they changed it already.  I click thru it to the Desktop. It do think it's tedious to find the shut down option. I operate on battery and a generator so my machine is on only when in use.
