    Windows 8 Live ID's for two computers?


    Hello readers,

    I have a question to prepare for Windows 8 Developer Preview.

    If I have two computers, which are both connected to the Internet, one computer used for development and one computer for personal use, how to set up the Windows Live ID in most comfortable way?

    Should I create two Live ID's, one for the development computer, and one for the personal computer?
    Or should I use one Live ID, and share it?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Best regards,

    Assuming you want to set up two live ID's and you dont have to on install (you are given to option of a local log on ID) you may want to have seperate Live ID's so that you dont have to worry about keeping both mail clients sync'ed

    I use the same Live ID on several computers. I have not experienced any problems - so far!
    IMHO. I would not see the purpose of having more than one live ID registered. It could make the situation more complicated.
