Thanks for that reminder. I had forgotten MS's "explanation" for the PIN being somehow "more secure".

And it really isn't; in fact the bar is seriously lowered. Anyone looking over my shoulder could probably make a pretty good guess as to what my PIN is - not so with my password. Once logged in, I can access an awful lot of my data without ever being prompted for anything else.

Being tied to the device doesn't prevent anyone from using it where it is, unless MS thinks I'm going to start paying armed guards to stand at my door.
