Its
1) 1 million less machines to fall foul of WGA however dubious this might turn out to be.
2) 1 million more OSS Systems in an expanding and growing country with a lot of potential wealth.

Once these get deployed then I'm sure that some on the undoubted many many PC's running pirated XP etc will be converted to Linux.
