Can you still log-in individually on each app?

    I used to do this when I had a local account in the earlier builds but I'm not sure if it still works and I wouldn't want to risk converting my local account into a ms-linked account. Can anyone test it if you have a VM or something?

    Yes, it's still possible.

    When prompted for a Microsoft Account you put into your details and click next, after it should ask you for a Windows password and below (in blue color = link style) that it says something like "Login only to this app instead" and you're good to go, still on a local account with a MSA just in that app.

    There is absolutely NO risk in converting local account to a Microsoft Account. There are only benefits. :)

    I don't want any links, logs or relation between what I do in my computer and my e-mail address/real name

    No problem.

    I also don't like to use a Microsoft Account for the whole system and i was confused as well because in Windows 8.1 we had the option to sign-in just to that app even before putting the details.
