Default Integrating xbox live with vista - a good idea?

So what are your opinions on the matter? For as many of you know xbox live will make it to vista sometime this spring.
I myself think it's a good idea, especially the friends list and gamer score system.

I voted they should be separated. While initially I thought the blending of the worlds was a good thing (mainly b/c I thought we'd get more games on the PC side) I now think it's killing PC gaming. A lot of these direct ports are running horribly on the PCs. If they (the platforms) were quite a bit different, the developer would have to spend some time making it work correctly on the PC and hopefully in that process make them run correctly/better. So maybe it does bring a few more games to the PC but what's the point when they suck (run badly). In the end, I think it just makes the consoles look more attractive especially now that they've got nice graphics. I mean, if the game runs well on the console but crappy on the PC, it just makes people get frustrated with PC gaming. My answer probably isn't directly related to Xbox Live and Vista but indirectly, I think it's relevant.
