What will happen to Metasploit??

With Rapid7's acquisition of the Open Source Pentest tool Metasploit Framework (http://www.metasploit.com)last week. I can't help but as the question; What will happen to it? The folks at Rapid7 assure that the tool will remain free, and will likely improve due to the internal collaboration. I think that they are wanting to find away to creep up on Core Impact (http://www.coresecurity.com), the incredible, but expensive automated pentesting tool. Metasploit has served as a great free option for those who care to spend the time.

What's next; time will only tell...
