I like to do some of those things

Its not only what MS can do to your data. From the news-
pick "Privacy Evaporates in Twitter Cloud, OWS Says" ...

"From the [District Attorney of New York]'s perspective, the
rise of e-storage has changed everything. The advent of
cloud computing releases the DANY from any obligation to ask
you for the information or obtain it from you through
discovery. From its perspective, it can deal with the owner
of the e-storage locker as though that person were the
principal, rather than your agent. Since the owner of the
storage locker does not have a proprietary interest or
expectation of privacy in the stored information, however,
that means there are no meaningful constitutional
constraints on law enforcement, and your First and Fourth
Amendment rights have vanished."

    but I am too concerned about the security and privacy of my data to use it.

    Nothing says you can't put a Linux distro on your computer and get all the benefits listed from using the Chromebook.

    ;)
