Unfortunately the experience went downhill fast.
Sums up the Microsoft experience.
Depending on your circumstances you may well have been looking forward to the day of signing in to Windows 10 using nothing more than an Office 365 login, via Azure Active Directory. But that day may not be upon us quite yet. There are two aspects to Azure AD sign-in with Windows 10. One is for administrators, who get the …
Thank you for your excellent article. I have been trying to understand the whole Office365/MSA/Azure sign-in process for some time now and always end up frustrated and bewildered. Your article has clarified a couple of things for me. I live in hope that Microsoft will clean up this mess.
.... MS need to sort this out PDQ. The sign in process in Win 8 already is a bit weird with ODFB and Office, and the confusing prompts for a Microsoft Account (aka my hotmail log in which is what it will be for a large number of people I suspect).
It doesn't seem that hard to design a sensible single sign on for Win 10, but that woudl require their product team, heaven forbid, from working together for once
This can all be explained by the usual integration teething problems you get when products from different firms need to be integrated using an industry-standard, fully open and well understood specification, but where there's still a bit of leeway as to how it all should work in the real world.
We had the same sort of issues with early enterprise message bus providers too.
Oh wait... I see what you mean...
It all depends which Data centre you are connected to when using the M$ cloud services.
Over here in HK it took nearly 4 months just to get 365 working and even now it is a pile of shit.
Don't even dream it works with anything other than M$ explorer.
The whole thing is designed to force you off any sort of 3rd party system and onto pure web based M$ email systems.
Cannot wait until all the M$ 'experts' are forced to use word & excel via a web browser, thought you could travel round China to your remote manufacturing plants and stay connected and use your office 365?
Well fuck you.
Boy is this windows 10 going to be a laugh once all these execs start traveling about the planet. Holidaying in the Philippines & Thailand is going to be taking a dive.... no wonder M$ is trying to setup a global wireless network.
Me so horny.... me M$ friend you, me network u, love you long long time....
