In Windows it is easy enough to change the MAC address if the driver allows it. My Intel 10/100
onboard allows a "Locally Administered Address" but my Intel PRO 1000 PT Server adaptor does not...
If I install Intel ProSet I may be able to change the address on the Server adaptor...

All I am saying is

How many people... I mean, just regular pc users would know how to execute
such command? Plus, no one in other than computer department in any company
would want to use linux? Mostly just windows or mac. Changing MAC address on
mac or windows is not that easy. But changing IP in Windows is just too
easy.

Most of my users are windows users. 

So that is why, for me, having mac filter in firewall rule would help so
much.

On linux, with iptables you have the option --mac-source.
Don't know if there exists something similar in ipfw.
