Learn all about Microsoft Accounts

I had not seen this site till very recently What is a Microsoft account? and it does a great job in explaining what a Microsoft Account is


“It starts with an email address and a password that are used to sign in to services such as Outlook.com, Skype, SkyDrive and Xbox Live, as well as devices such as Windows 8 PCs, tablets and phones, and Xbox entertainment systems. If you use an email address and password to sign in to these or other Microsoft services, you already have a Microsoft account.”

The site covers:

  • What is a Microsoft Account?
  • Why sign in with a Microsoft Account?
  • Security & Privacy.
  • Tracking your purchase history.
  • How to create a Microsoft Account.

as well as a nice FAQ section
