Are the PWM ports on the Arduino 101 usable like normal ports?

I'm new to coding and I'm doing a project that is going to eight different LEDs go off at different times but there are only six digital ports. I've experimented a little bit but I haven't been able to find out anything.

Yes, they should be usable as normal I/O pins. The PWM is an additional functionality they have. Is there an Arduino 101 section? The main forum sections have almost no discussion of the 101 (I would say the 5 sections at the top of the board are about 75% AVR, 10% SAMD, 15% other (mostly esp8266), with essentially no discussion of the 101)

Thank you. I'll see if i can make this work. :)
