I think the scary thing about this idea is that manufacturers may see 
this as a viable way to support Linux.  Why write an open source driver 
or fund an open-source driver, or release specs so people can make open 
source drivers if you can just make a binary windows driver and have it 
work on Linux too?

In my opinion this gives manufacturers even less of a reason to look 
into open-source driver support for their hardware.

I swear this is bad news.  Time will tell.
