How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

Why is it so hard to connect to a Azure VM I just created?

Why is it impossible to RDP into a brand new Azure VM I just created? I specified SysAdmin as the userid and a strong password when creating the new VM (using the VS 2015 on Windows 10 template) and now, no matter what I try, I cannot login to that VM.

I am extremely frustrated.

I have deleted and created the VM 3 times now and each time, when I try to login, it offers MicrosoftAccount\sysadmin as the userid, and I supply the password I gave when I created the VM, but it always says "The loon attempt failed".

What is the "domain" of a newly created VM? Or is SysAdmin a local account, not a domain account?
