Summary:
My guess - based on absolutely nothing at all except a feeling that the CAFC would not be hearing Bilski en banc unless it was looking to make major changes to the current software and business method patent regime in the US - is that the case will lead to the US system becoming much more like the one we have in Europe. Here, business method patents are pretty much unobtainable, while software patents are much harder to get, though maybe not as hard as they once were.
