Remember Netbooks? Windows 10 makes them good again!

Re: Microsoft account

As I recall, the account was mandatory on Windows 8/8.1 betas. Once it was released, you could set it up to have a local account rather than tie it to a Microsoft Live account but they tended to try to make the option for a local account somewhat less obvious.

It's a similar state of affairs to Windows 10 in that respect.
