Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

just don't tie your user account to a Microsoft account. It is easy, and in a domain, the default. It's no big deal at all.

Sticking with Windows 7 isn't a big deal either.

That really wasn't what we were talking about, the op had expressed concern over using Win8 with a MS Live account. Even though you are technically correct, you're still a troll.

Thanks for your input!

Big deal or not, Microsoft should now better than to use reversible encryption.
Or maybe they know exactly what they're doing...

That normal users of their OS forget their passwords all the freaking time so they should make sure they hold the keys so they can allow you to forget your password?
