Microsoft Does U-turn on MSN Music Shutdown

In a past rant, I talked about Microsoft's decision to close its DRM servers for its MSN Music service, rendering all of the music bought from the online store next to worthless. Luckily, it turns out that Microsoft listened to what was being said by the online community and they have decided to keep the servers online. They have extended the date from the previous cut-off of the 31st of August 2008 to at least the end of 2011.

This is great news for anyone that used the MSN Music service before it closed, but still it is not as good a solution as a method of removing the DRM, so that this problem will never happen in the future.
