You’ll need it at some occasion, you might as well get your microsoft account and get over it. The Outlook UI is clean. I actually like the integrated Skype in outlook.com and I avoid anything MSN*. The Add-Ins are nice, let you stay in outlook while searching for locations with yelp or whatever. I just don’t see the add-in for Trello in my free account, even though it comes up in many Demos. It ain’t important for now.
They also let me get away with blocking the Ads in Outlook. Kinda nice but nothing to exaggerate about.
As a Developer you might be more interested in the fact that OneDrive.com supports Syntax Highlighting. Check the Community post for that:
OneDrive.com not only lets you edit various code text files in the browser but also provides IDE type features like…answers.microsoft.com
So the account is taken care of. The first steps are boring, I know, sorry for that. That’s it for today.
