    I don't really care if Microsoft is successful or not. Why wouldn't I want any company to make a good product? :confused: In fact, I'd think it be nice if more people started using Bing. It has certainly brings up search results (or not in the same order of what it feels is important) that I don't get when I search Google, for better or worse.

    I only want Bing to compete better with today, and tomorrow's, Google because I really don't want Google to get all the control over information.

    While I'm no google fanboy by any stretch, Microsoft doesn't have the best track record either. I'm not sure who I'd prefer, but I seem to settle in to googling rather then binging my search needs.

    It is important that Google have a big competitor though. I hope MS stay in the game, fruitless as it may be to them.

    As long as MS have deep pockets it keeps Google on their toes. No bad thing.

    The threat to Google will come from Baidu, not Bing.

    Good point and I agree.

    It's always best when you have at least two companies competing in the market place. It keeps the companies on their toes and provides a better product for the customer.

    I had to Google it just to know what it even was. Maybe it'll be a big international player in future, for now it's Google vs Bing as far as I can tell.

    Don't know if you intended this to be funny, but it's hilarious. You had to google the supposed google competitor. That's just great! :D
