I'm just wondering what everyone's take is on the whole thing. For me, I find having everything linked to my Microsoft account to be kind of useful.

:ditto: Specially with Win10 coming and I can sync everything then. Or after a reinstall it speeds setting everything back-up. Plus then I don't have "everything" just at home on my PCs but can access over all.

Local only, I do not use any app, nor plan to, so sync is pointless for me.
Local account is supposed to be completely disabled between Windows 11-12.

Local here. No use for the store, don't use one drive or cloud services in general. I have satellite ISP with monthly data cap and can't afford to waste it on stuff I don't really need or use.

Local for me to.

Having OneDrive on the desktop might have its uses but I use it so infrequently that accessing it via outlook email is fine.
