Installing Office365 on your PC, using a Microsoft ID, with a University or work e-mail, can be hazardous to your local Admin privs!

Gotta be careful when linking Office365 accounts with personal PCs. On the account link process itll ask, let this group set rights on this PC. The moment you do that, that PC settings are no longer yours to control. If the admin on the O365 sets a rule to the computers, your computer also will get it.
Its the biggest pain in the ass. I've done it by accident and did a re-install of my PC to bloody remove.
Scary stuff folks. Install Office365, they take over and control your PC!

I guess it is a good thing there are free alternatives to MS office out there.
