Speaking seriously, this strikes me as a good move/news. id's definitely a professional team that knows how to execute and polish a product, and they definitely have the technical chops. They "just" need to get some people involved who have a better understanding of things like player motivation and some fresh ideas, and put them into a position where they can make decisions for a project. If that's what we get out of this there could be some good games coming our way in the future again. Not holding my breath or anything, but it's a step into the right direction. I'd rather not see all the things id does have going for it go to waste.
And if you find it hard to muster some goodwill here, remember this is also the company who e.g. put out multiple generations of their technology - the stuff they made their name on more than anything, i.e. something that most other companies would guard ferociously - out as open source, which we got further games out of and which influenced and educated generations of game programmers. Their total track record as a company is still a positive one in my book, and we're all better off if they figure out how to recapture that made them great.
