Games "Microsoft has sensationally abandoned its controversial plans to restrict the sharing of XBox One games, and has also removed daily online authentication requirements for its forthcoming console", reports The Guardian. They had no choice. Still a good move.

Opposition to steam has decreased, but it certainly still exists. "Renting" as a replacement for buying, DRM, etc.
Microsoft suck, but this is being directed at them for changing how disc-based games work, not due to who they are. With PC games, you can still buy a disc, and just not activate it on steam.
These restrictions are accepted for downloaded games, but not physical media games, which was the point.
