    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

    Also, I have noticed that when I login with my Live ID and I have already signed in (in the selection mode), that the sign in process has me click my name... it then goes through like 5 or 6 screens/redirects (!) and then lands back on the very page that had me select to begin with. Selecting it a second time does the trick (after the aforementioned redirect track race).

    "Me Too" ... how entirely frustrating is it that MSFT has had an identity system going back for almost 10 years and they still cannot get it right? I have had my Live ID for over a decade and OH THE PAINFUL STORIES I PERCHANCE CAN REGALE. But I will not. :P

    To Team Azure's credit, I have gone through and have cleared out my Azure account and have tried to move everything from my personal (live id) to my business (office 365, with also a live id -- DOH). It was less painful than I expected, as MSFT has such a history of completely getting identity wrong (see above).

    The only thing I have encountered is that when I attempt to assign a Co-administrator to my Azure account, it selects my Live ID business (WRONG!) instead of my Office 365 (correct). I even have my Office 365-connected Active Directory linked to my Azure account and it is still selecting the Live ID... uhhhhhhhhhhhhhggggggggh. Seriously. :P Everything else has worked pretty well though. Surprising. :)

    OK I totally have my facts messed up, turns out this is a PROGRAM manager that "promised" this was coming soon... and he was in fact talking about other CLI's that were not windows. Also, the video is 50 minutes and not 90.

    Man, talk about a hat trick of fail! Anyways, I wanted to get that straight. Additionally, the moment at which this happens in the video is 37:55. Yes, this video is so good I have watched it twice. :)

    Or wherever you're supposed to go to modify your profile. Updating my profile at the link above did NOT update the profile information in the top right. :( :/ :v
