WordPress hackers are normally after individual installs that might not be up-to-date or patched. To my knowledge the stuff hosted on wordpress.com is generally immune to that. If there's an issue a central server patch would solve the problem for everything hosted on that domain.

Stay tuned for the next step announcement, Microsoft buys Wordpress, packages WP downloads with IE, makes WP widgets work only in IE browsers.

Ok, maybe not, but at the same time I wouldn't be surprised.

No, please, say it isnt so. MS buys WP, overmanages, restricts access, WP dies a slow death. New OS product emerges. Ack. (This has happenned with at least four companies I know of, albeit they did not have wide adoption like WP and were more niche products, but still, it scares me. I like the word Partnership, at least its not ACQUIRES)
