How so?

I see it as a way to keep the user experience something that MS controls without allowing 3rd parties to jack it up. So now when the user has a bad experience MS owns it not some 3rd party. IE was crippled by 3rd party add-ons--much like firefox is. While it's great to have those features what they found is the masses that complain about the product being slow or buggy-it's caused by 3rd party add-ons.

But if they plan to do this they have to do a better job of putting in what consumers want in the out of box experience. Like a built in spell checker.
