logon user



i'm curiouse to know what kind of user you use to login into your surface.

Do you use your Microsoft account (like [email protected]) and why?
Do you use a local account and just add your Microsoft account data into apps like the store? Why are you using a local account?

Right now i use my Microsoft account, but i may change that.

And you?

Passport aka Windows Live account. No need for local account because I don't need to be authenticated by our active directory.

Microsoft account. I'd rather have everything connected in one easy swoop than a local account and have to sign into everything individually.

I use my Microsoft account that's associated with my email, calendar, Xbox Live, and Zune Pass. Used on my Surface, Xbox, Windows Phone, and netbook. Keeps everything in sync.
