Why is that bad? Anything that improves the security of Windows is a plus in my book. Personally, Im sick and tired of seeing all these MS related cracks filling my server logs, so cleaning it up and providing some proper security would be most welcome.

The bigger question is will he have any impact. MS seems horribly resistant to change.

Well MS seems to crack Linux up this way!! I think these are ways the M$ is taking in overtaking the Linux in the race.
