Windows I may not be particularly enamoured with how badly Windows 8 handles mouse, keyboard, and window management right now, but as far as under-the-hood improvements go, Microsoft is packing. They're redone much of the chkdsk utility, but they forgot to fix one important thing: rename the darn thing to checkdisk already!

From reading the linked text it seems to me as if MS just separated detecting filesystem errors and fixing them.
So now a FS scan can be run while the FS is online. Only for fixing errors the FS has to taken offline for a short while. (And it does not work for very severe FS damage, in those cases the scan still has to be offline)

So please correct me if I am wrong, but it looks as if NTFS health model is still miles away from ZFS.
