Logging into your WIndows 8 as a user presents an interesting problem.
I've installed Windows 8 as a test on a hard drive and discovered that if you choose to install Windows 8 using your Live ID it quickly becomes very inconvenient if you have a secure password. I have a computer generated hash for a Live ID password so it is completely impracticable. The only way this would work is if you had a very weak password. Imagine trying to log into Windows with a 32 or 64+ character password consisting of a randomly generated sequence of lower and upper case and special characters every time and you will know what I mean. I did create a new local user which worked much better for logging into the install, but then I can't use SkyDrive or any online features by just logging into Windows as a local account. Of course you can log into those features after you log into your local user account. I am just saying that using the Windows Live login to get into your PC is useless if you have a complex password. My Windows 8 test drive crashed and burned so I will install it again but this time I will not be creating a Windows Live login, but will stick to a local user login. I have nothing else to say about Windows 8 because I've only used it for a total of 10 minutes but from what I've seen so far it looks and performs incredibly!
