The reason I like google is because I get what I expect from a search and it is very simple... Bing just doesn't do anything for me (just like MSN search and live.com didn't)

You might want to read this blog entry: http://www.cuil.com/info/blog/2009/06/09/bing
It's from the CEO of Cuil.
Bing’s growth is driven by the last case: Where there is a straight-up comparison between Google and Bing. But, and this is a critical issue, the queries where people leave Google are ones where they did not find what they were looking for—things are always in the last place you look, because then you stop looking.

Therefore, a critical test is whether Bing shows results that Google doesn’t, as people have already seen the results Google showed, and they did not like those. The overlap in result sets is therefore a critical measure, with less overlap being better (for this use case).
And this one too: http://www.cuil.com/info/blog/2009/06/2 ... bing-doing
which is a follow-up.

Please, that is the last thing we need. Microsoft already controls a large percentage of the market, and we don't need them taking over Yahoo, too. They've already attempted a takeover/team-up with Yahoo, but Yahoo refused. More power to them for refusing Mircosoft's deal.

Which market? Surely not search! I think that it's Google which already controls a large percentage of that market.

What's wrong with Google? I love how simple and minimal the search page is. I find "Bing" really cluttered.

I'm trying to bring up myself into bing and to start using the SE on regular basis. The reason to do this is that I like it.

It annoys me that Microsoft continually rebrand their search. Live search, bing, what next???

Focus on the product, not the branding

They're also busy keeping people in their Microsoft world. 'What? Blogger? You don't need that when you've got LiveSpace! (or whatever it's called) Google Docs? No, no, no, we have MS Office for that!'

I'm not fond of Bing; the way they've set up their design doesn't really fit; a picture of ants carrying leaves doesn't jive with blue links to whatever websites that have nothing to do with ants. And what's this clutter to the right? I don't need that! Of course, there's more to search engines than style, but that's the first thing I look at.
