far scarier what this means for security, seeing that flash and anything from Adobe is like the Nr.2 point of attack for nearly every worm trojan and virus

Ayup. We're supposed to be dumping Flash for HTML5... not sticking with a targeted technology that is impossible to secure, and requires an install (for most platforms).

at least not until there is a way to use it without ANY live ID

well... I haven't been following Win8 that closely... but a work around might be setting up a linux box as a samba DC (or setting up Server 2008-R2 as a DC, downloaded from an MSDN or TechNet Account). I'm pretty sure enterprise logons to company domains won't be live IDs.

That said... I wouldn't get Windows 8 anyway. I fricken hate Metro.
