Bing Loses More Money As Microsoft Chases Google
I wonder if Bing will find its place in companies desktop SOE through the transition between Windows XP and Windows 7. Most companies will lock down the desktops pretty tight, so depending on how your IT department feels you may not get a choice of what search engine you use.

3. I would have more respect for Microsoft if they didn't always try to lock you in to their products e.g Sharepoint, Office, C# etc.
