    you can use an offline account to log into windows with,
    as you do with windows 7, but certain things wont work ,like skydrive,
    skydrive has change in 8.1.

    when you set up 8.1 it will ask which account you want to set up with, choose the offline way and type in a password.

    It's simple really. When asked, give a invalid e-mail and password. It will fail and the window will then have a link on the right side saying Use Local Account. Click that and off you go. I've done this 4-5 times now.
