I don't believe for one minute that all of a sudden MS is on the users' side.  If they don't want to provide the Feds with user data, it's only because it will cost them time & money to do it.  Snowden already showed us that MS, Google, Yahoo, AOL & who know who else gave the Feds whatever they wanted.

Well, certainly it's enlightened self-interest.  If the Feds can do this, then no one outside of the US would use any US-based cloud service.
So they need it to remain in business, and it'll benefit us en passant.  Sounds good to me.
