Bing is in Beta in countries such as the UK; Microsoft is still working on localised engines and will come out of beta (and do a big advertising campaign) in each country when they believe their product is right.
Bing is out of Beta in the US and Canada - so if you go to the .com (and do not have the country selection attribute set) then you should see no Beta sign, but go to the .co.uk (or [bing.com...] ) and you'll see the Beta.
You can see different countries by altering the cc like so (or try the local country code domain, but I don't know of Microsoft has EveryBing):
[bing.com...] (note the ninemsn at the very top right) [bing.com...] (note Simpatico at the very top right) etc... (try mx and others that have language differences and you'll see interesting stuff)
