Something I discovered not too long ago when setting up a new computer. Microsoft does not allow local accounts when setting up a new computer or installing Windows anymore. Guess it started last year. You are now required to setup a Microsoft account. But - You can bypass it by disconnecting your internet service whether it be wifi or cable and it will let you skip the account setup.

But they do allow it. As you noted, just make sure you are not connected to the Internet and the install will continue with a local account. No problem.

if microsoft really allowed it, they would give you a choice like they used to. True, they could have still forced it on you when connected.

No. That makes no sense. They do allow it. You even said it yourself - just don't connect to a network when installing and you can press on with a local account. I do it all the time with new client builds.

If they didn't allow it, the installation would halt until you got Internet access.

Is Microsoft being pushy about using a Microsoft account? Yes. But do they still allow the use of a Local Account. Sure.

why are you wanting to argue about a tip!!!! It may not make sense to you but it does to me. Until last year, you had the option to skip creating a microsoft account for your computer and go with local accounts without having to disconnect your internet. You don't anymore but you can bypass it by turning off your internet to the computer - which was my tip. For whatever reason you are wanting to argue about it - GET REAL!!!
