Windows 8 planning: Consolidating IDs to Outlook.com

Hello tribe,

You may remember me from such posts as "Windows 8 planning: Home vs Work." /s

Anyway, I read a posting in here about switching your windows ID to using outlook.com and how you have to reset your windows phone. (great post, too bad I did not bookmark it) I figured I would just wait until I get my WP8 in Feb with a contract renewal to change my ID. However, I am seeing that you need your windows ID for windows 8 setup so....

Should I just go ahead and make the change now?

thoughts?
