Default Zune Pass music

Ok, after the death of my P2, I decided to go the way of the Zune. Now, with my 120gb beast, I can actually begin collecting music without worrying about player space. Does anyone know if the zune pass supports non-drm music? I don't really care if the music will be tied down to three players, my only concerns are being able to play the music (if it is drm-free) after my subscription is up. From other threads, I have gathered that this option isn't available, but I'm new to the zune-field, so I'm not quite sure how this works. I know that I will now be able to keep 10 tracks, but would those be in addition to those (if they are offered as drm-free) other tracks?
The 90-million (or some extreme amount) drm-free tracks, those are only for the zune point users, no? It would be nice if they are downloadable through zune pass, but that seems to shiny to have any valididty.
I know that people reccomend buying used cds as opposed to using single downloads, but I am still learning which artists and genres I enjoy.

Any pointers would be great

yeah, the 10 tracks you keep can be all 100% DRM free. Even if you use the credit with DRM WMA tracks you can burn the tracks and re-rip.

Zune Pass music (subscription music) are not DRM free but you can play those track in up to 3 Zune, computers, PlaysforSure device and Windows Mobile phones.

So any music gotten --save for the 10 "special" tracks-- will be needing re-activation once my subscription expires, no?

Thanks for the info

Right, right, I was just looking to see if they had any drm-free files for subscribers, or if it was only drmed.

Thanks
