What are your reasons for attaching your MSA after OOBE?


So I know Paul recommends creating a local account when you set up a PC for the first time and then adding your Microsoft account later. For folks who do that, what are your reasons why?

Now, I don’t mean “because I don’t use a Microsoft account” or “because I plan to join it to my home domain”. I specifically mean, if you plan to skip the Microsoft account step in OOBE and then go and attach it later.

I personally agree, and I have my reasons, but what are yours?

Full disclosure: I work in Windows and my team is trying to streamline the setup experience for consumers.
