macuser: Is there any benefit to a local account? I love my outlook/windows live account as it syncs all my settings/themes across PCs etc
With a local account I didn't have to enter a password when I started the machine, now I do, I'm looking for a way around this. I only have one machine outside of the domain, so I don't get any other benefits from the tight coupling with Microsoft. I tested that it would, still log on when disconnected, which works fine, so it's just the password I want to overcome.
Sadly I hoped Win8 would support a true remote wipe, I wonder is 8.1 does, that would make the increment worth while.
