Sorry but a lot of the default apps that come with Windows 8 - mail, calendar, address book, app store- won't even let you past the start screen if you don't log in with a Windows ID. Even if you want to use the default Mail app for a non-Hotmail account you need to log in with a Windows ID. Not only that, but Windows 8 pushes you to use your Windows ID as your login for your user account.

"you don't have to use your LiveID in Win8"

Right. As long as you don't want to do things like, oh I don't know, use the email app to get email, or update the stock apps, or have a Calendar, or have an address book - then yes, you don't need a Microsoft account.

There are never any bugs you haven't found yet.

Working...
