New Delhi, February 27: Elon Musk on Tuesday further escalated his arguments with Microsoft on X, asking its Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella to allow people to set up a new Windows PC without creating a Microsoft account.

As Nadella posted about the company's partnership with Mistral AI, a leader in generative artificial intelligence, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO replied that he does not want to “be a pest”. “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,” Musk posted. Tesla CEO Elon Musk Says Gemini AI at Heart of Every Google Product and YouTube Is Extremely Alarming.

“This option disappears if the computer is connected to WiFi.
