Microsoft Buys LinkedIn - What Do You Think?

Everyone's favorite (or least favorite as the case may be) tech company, Microsoft is buying LinkedIn.

I think LinkedIn is an important site for the video surveillance industry, especially for marketing (e.g., see: LinkedIn's Emergence as a Video Surveillance Marketing Power), though it has failed on the discussion / content side for our industry.

What do you think? Will Microsoft make LinkedIn better?
