Mine went well, it is annoying how they push you to use their mail service.

Actually they are not doing this. They are pushing you to a "Microsoft account", which is the current name for their range of consumer online services. They don't require that you use all these services; they require that you get a Microsoft identity (username and password at minimum, payment info if you want to purchase WinRT apps). Once you have this, you can use all the other services with this identity, if you want. That includes email, but also online storage, instant messaging, and other services.
