It doesn't leave a hard copy on a drive unless one configures it to do so, of which I just learned.
I've been using OneDrive since I bought my Lumia WP8.1 back after the first of the year, so I know how useful it is. In fact I'm speaking into the phone writing this post in a Word file via OneDrive on my Lumia to copy/paste into the forums text box while enjoying the afternoon sun on my patio deck.

Take a look at the screenshots. I'm talking about the long list of apps on the left of the Start Menu. I'm not trying to hack anything, but it's not at all obvious how to remove them from there. Both screenshots are from the same Start Menu, you have to scroll down to get to something useful.
The background color is also rather ugly. So far I only found a way to choose out of a dozen solid colors like that.
Windows 10 really needs to sort out Control Panel and PC Settings. Perhaps Control Panel is no longer so relevant? I could do without it, if PC Settings really provided the same functionality.
I'd like more of the feeling I have with 8.1 that the Modern UI parts of Windows are the 'workings' of the OS, behind the scenes of the Desktop and applications.
I'm surprised that better personalisation isn't on that list, though.
Control panel is more of a hardware oriented than PC Settings, I would be lost without it even with "God Mode" nearby.
I think the role of PC Settings might change, it to take over some if not all Control Panel functions.
(To support this assumption I have nothing else than the Tech Preview feedback jumping in already a few times asking me which one do I prefer (PC Settings or CP) and why I chose Control Panel instead of PC Settings.)
