Well this was unexpected! DRM U-Turn
Sorry to link to Engadget but i didn't see anything on The verge, MS also confirms this but their blog is currently down, probably to traffic.
Although these issues didn't affect me personally, I have to say kudos to MS for listening and not being to proud to back down on a policy. However it does look like once again progress has been halted because of bad PR, MS had to do this but in the long run the industry is held back.
