OneDrive for (Companyweb) SBS Users - Without a Microsoft Account

Hi,
we've rolled out a fairly simple document library on a SharePoint 2010 portal aka Companyweb (WinSBS 2011).

Microsoft OneDrive is not shipped with the SBE version of Office 2013 but is available for download (either the normal version or the "for business" version).
Using either I am prompted to log in first with a Microsoft Account (or sign in if I don't have one).
How can I bypass that ?  I simply want to enable "roaming" users on their laptops to sync the library on the SharePoint portal and use it when offline, nothing to do with Msoft's could therefore no need for a Msoft Account.

What's the trick ? Used to be just fine with "SharePoint Workspace" on Office 2010.

Cheers.

OneDrive is the replacement for SkyDrive...has nothing to do with synchronization of SharePoint / CompanyWeb

Okay, I was under the impression OneDrive/SkyDrive was the replacement for SharePoint Workspace under Office2013 ?

So if I want to take a library offline, what would I be using ?

Well I stand slightly corrected...there is a OneDrive for business that allows for the sync, but looks like it might require SharePoint 2013

But it looks like workspace will still work as well
