    I'm not expecting much out of it. The current MSN search engine sucks, and the search engine on Microsoft's own web site (used for searching it) sucks, too. Most Microsoft products are marketed to all hell and then end up sucking, and then ones that don't suck entirely rarely meet the expectations most would have. I doubt this will be any different.

    I havent heard much about it but what I have heard isnt good. The results that I gathered from the testing was that as per normal google came out on top although the relevance of its posts were not always that accurate neither were microsofts. Think for accurace ask jeeves came out pretty well.

    Anyway back to topic .. they think that the microsoft search engine will be good in the long run but the simple low number of currently indexed sites means that the number of hits and the relevance of the results is not as good as could be expected in the future.

    I think as Yawnm0th said MS just like to try and get a slice of everyone's pie. I haven't really read much about the MS engine yet but think that converting Google users is going to be very tough. Yahoo's engine has gone okay since they launched it though, but only because they copied Google's simple design. Personally I think you need something with a bit of a twist on the original search engine idea like Eurekster are doing to be successful.
