Elon Musk comments: “I don’t want to seem like a pest, but…”

Elon Musk took to X to share a comment on a post shared by Satya Nadella on the microblogging platform. The Tesla CEO posted a request for the Microsoft CEO and urged him to allow people to set up a new Windows PC without mandatorily creating a Microsoft account.

The X CEO commented on a tweet by Satya Nadella declaring about the company’s collaboration with Mistral AI. “Satya, I don’t mean to be a pest, but please allow people setting up a new Windows PC to skip creating a Microsoft account,” Elon Musk wrote in the comments section.

As for why Elon Musk shared such a comment like this, we need to take a look at another post he earlier shared. In his post, Musk wrote, “Just bought a new PC laptop and it won’t let me use it unless I create a Microsoft account, which also means giving their AI access to my computer! This is messed up. There used to be an option to skip signing into or creating a Microsoft account. Are you seeing this too?”
