    I have activated the new office in my Windows 8. I'd like to avoid using my live account, but that doesn't seem to be possible. Do you guys use your accounts in it? Do you think it'll pose a problem in the future?

    I don't think that's possible on Windows 8 :/. Office uses the system account

    you can change the office account to another live account that isn't being used by win8

    so yeah, make a new live account for office and then you do not have to use the win8 account that office defaults to.

    My Windows is legit and I use my account with other services aswell, including my Windows Phone. That's why I don't want it be used by Office 2013
