    It is supposedly the next operating system from Microsoft. It joins a long line of OS's from MS. Just a few being Windows 95, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7. Next Windows 8. Welcome to the Wait!

    There are some rumors that it is gonna be all Cloud based - Similar to Google Chromium OS

    Which I hate because all your Information is stored Online ...

    Still prefer the HDD Base system

    Although the future is the cloud, I like the traditional centralized storage too! I don't think that Windows 8 will be totally "clouded", but probably some specific features will !

    It could well be a 'User Defined' level of storage. Giving the user the option to use localized HDD based storage or online storage. Personally I prefer localized because of the security risks involved in any online data storing server.

    I agree, I'd much prefer to have my important information on my machine rather than floating around in space. I suppose there could be a place for some things but not all.

    Agree there Joan I would be happier with sensitive stuff on my own Hard Drive.

    The more "User Defined" options, the better IMO.

    Totally agree, i could see online storage being useful for some features in the OS but i would not be a happy camper if all file storage was in cloud based.
