    I'm using only the builtin administrator account since Vista (awesome os), in Windows 8, all metro apps were disabled. Will i miss something in 10 that would be more useful that full compatibility with everything that want admin access?

    You need to remember to run things as admin all the time if you want to ever change any settings...

    I suggest just using the build in administrative account as the main one
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I knew that, just wanted know if some of disabled features is worth it. Anyway i think there isn't any.

    You win some, you lose some. Using the Microsoft account means you don't have to sign in to any apps that need you to sign in. However, simple file sharing between computers on a LAN or WLAN no longer works - you have to set up a homegroup or workgroup, and create additional users on the computer whose files you want to access.

    Not sure what happens when the internet connection is down. Guess I'll find out soon enough.
