Before discussion on Skydrive integration with Windows 8, first I am telling you:
What is Skydrive?
"It is a Metro UI based application that allow users to access and browse remote files from the web via a fast and fluid touch based interface"

Microsoft's Skydrive Metro app for Windows 8

Microsoft intends for SkyDrive to "evolve with Windows 8 from a website today into a true device cloud for Windows customers," Mike Torres and Omar Shahine, group program managers for SkyDrive, wrote in the post. "With Windows 8, we wanted to make sure that your files would be instantly available and up-to-date as you move between PCs--without configuring add-ons or using a USB drive." 
  • This will bring a file cloud to every Metro style app, allowing you to open files in your SkyDrive and save them right back to your SkyDrive just like you would on your local hard drive
  • The desktop app will allow "easy drag-and-drop upload and download support for SkyDrive, anywhere access to your data, offline access, and the power of Windows Explorer to manage your files and folders."
Also coming for SkyDrive will be a desktop app for Internet Explorer and the ability to fetch remote files from the Web, the software giant revealed on its Building Window 8 blog.
