I'm glad DRM is going away more and more. Anyone remember "Plays 4 Sure"? Yea, that was Microsoft's first pass at DRM, and when the Zune came out, the Zune wouldn't play it in favor of the new Zune Store DRM.
The main point I was trying to make here is that no iPods work with a subscription service that lets you load as many songs as you want on your player for a monthly fee. That is the big advantage Zune has over iPod.
