Is this interviewer's email good or bad?

What does it mean in this situation? After you send the interviewer thank you email, they reply that they like your energy and enthusiasm a lot and that they want to keep you in the pool, that they are still interviewing a couple of candidates so they will not have any updates for the next 2 weeks? Is this a nice way of saying we like you but not really? Or is this just standard practice in the name of fairness?

After spending some time analyzing your situation, it would be safe to say that you'll find out in two weeks.

FWIW, my friend got essentially the same exact response to his follow up email and ended up getting the offer two weeks later.
