It will start at 11:00 PT, and will be available to watch on the Microsoft News Center site.

    Might have something to do with XBox One rather than Windows. MS has been touting how the console will be using the cloud heavily.

    I don't like to use Cloud for my computing. I prefer to put my stuff on my computer and know exactly where it's at. Yes that has a certain disadvantage over cloud computing, but that's still the way I want it. So is windows 10 such that some of my stuff will still get on cloud? Or is there a way to configure it so that it doesn't go there? I would appreciate your advice. Thank you.

    I'm not 100% sure, but you're probably better off with a Local Account because even Windows 8 syncs different settings across devices, although if you don't activate Onedrive you should be reasonably safe. I say reasonably because with the Internet who knows what can happen.
    I was a bit wary at first but I now have my Music on Onedrive and I can play it from all my various devices, I've also got other non personal stuff on there as well. Unfortunately or fortunately this is the future of computing and the benefits are pretty huge, except of course with a couple of downsides.

    You don't have to have any of your stuff in the cloud if you don't want, it's completely optional.

    I am not sure, that's entirely true. Certainly, not activating/signing in to Onedrive keeps most of the files local. On the other hand, there might be some other synchronization/backup in the background. Case in point...

    I've initially installed W10 TP with my MS account that later had been removed. That resulted in disabling the fast ring updates, which was just fine for me. When W10 10260 had become available, I've added my MS account. This resulted in enabling the fast ring updates and change my desktop background for this account. The Brooklyn Bridge image was no longer accessible locally, but MS "kindly" downloaded to my system from the cloud. It seems that some of the personalized settings are synchronized/backed up to the cloud, I certainly did not do it intentionally. Not a big deal, just makes me wonder what else is uploaded to the cloud?

    Check the Settings app, the default will be to sync your settings, themes etc but these can all be turned off

    Thanks for the link...

    Unless updates change these setting, this is what I preferred from the start of installing W10 TP:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	sync.jpg 
Views:	7 
Size:	27.7 KB 
ID:	25333

    The statement starting with "Some..." may indicate that other 'features" are available, regardless if the end user has an MS account or not.

    my reading of that is the 'Some Features' it refers to are the syncing ones

    if you want to sync any settings you need to use an MS account, but with an MS account you can turn syncing off if you don't want it
