Just wondering... now that Yahoo! owns inktomi, fast and altavista, there should be space for teoma! First of all Msn, what do you think?

MSN is developing its own engine, so probably no chance on that one.
Teoma, AJ are using an organic growth feed, in which there are constantly gaining ground in the search space, though at a fast rate - compared to the big-boys still small.

slowly niggiling away at them all. Especially niche specific searches with demographics towards women and children.

They don't seem to be out there too aggressively, or else have been unsuccessful- so I really doubt it.
Many portals go with G because that's the brand most people want their search coming from. If they can't get it from their portal's home page they'll go straight to Google. And a portal doesn't want that.
AV has been mentioned quite a bit as having beefed up it's results, and is presenting some quality serps. Looks a lot more active and inclusive than AJ at the moment.
LS is in a fight for survival and thus hungrier, it doesn't compete with it's partners, and would make a good match with a portal if it ever gets around to dusting off wisenut and getting it into shape.
AJ announced a hiring spree last month, mostly for sales/marketing team so you never know...
