The wind turbine biz has become the unmaking of Siemens AG. They bet heavily on them, due to all the taxpayer-funded subsidies some European governments were throwing around.

Then the recession hit, governments like Germany and Denmark emptied the subsidy trough, and now firms like Siemens are reeling from the crash in wind turbine sales.

Live by the government, die by the government.

I think the best advantage of this for Siemens is that small features that may not get development money at other CAD software developers are more likely to get developed. Sometimes there just isn't the business case to spend money on a feature that a small portion of the users will utilize. When you are using the product there is an additional cost of not implementing that may come in to play.
