Sign into Windows with your Microsoft account and the operating system immediately syncs settings and data to the company’s servers. That includes your browser history, favorites and the websites you currently have open as well as saved app, website and mobile hotspot passwords and Wi-Fi network names and passwords.
You can deactivate that by hopping into settings, but I’d argue that it should be opt-in rather than on by default. Many users won’t get round to turning it off, even though they would probably want to.

I hate the MS account intergration though. I first was using a local account. But to get to the "app store" you have to log in. And once I logged in it connected my local account with that email address.

After years on Linux, I'm moving back to Windows in my PC. It got the two things it was lacking: virtual desktops (someone will say that with dual monitors you don't need them, but if you have a single monitor, it's pretty much needed) and a built-in packaging system.

I'm in no hurry for 10, 7 Pro 64 bit is fine for me and has no problems that 10 can solve.
Besides, 10 will have initial problems, so you might as well wait for those to get fixed in the first service pack.

Multiple workspaces is a feature I just can not live without anymore. Regardless of the number of monitors. I've tried some hacks for other versions of Windows but it's just not there for me. Maybe I'll give 10 a look!
