Permit New Pcs Without Windows Account: Musk Lashes Out At Nadella

By Consultants Review Team Tuesday, 27 February 2024

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, intensified the current conflict between Microsoft and himself on Tuesday by pushing CEO Satya Nadella to permit consumers to install Windows on a new computer without having to create an account.

"Satya, I don't mean to be a pest, but please allow people setting up a new Windows PC to skip creating a Microsoft account," Musk said in response to Nadella's article on Microsoft's collaboration with Mistral AI in generative artificial intelligence.

Musk drew attention to the restriction that, while the machine is linked to WiFi, the option to forego creating an account is removed. He said that it is inconvenient for those with job-specific email accounts because the system prohibits using a work email address even if one wants to register.

Musk has posted, but Nadella hasn't replied as of yet. The argument started over the weekend when Musk posted about his troubles with his new Windows computer and expressed annoyance over the need to create a Microsoft account in order to proceed with the setup.

The back and forth highlights how crucial user experience and adaptability are to the setup procedures of tech items, particularly with regard to the prerequisites for account creation. The outcome of this interaction, whether resolved or not, may have an effect on future Windows PC user onboarding.
