I had a chance to look at an analysis of a SERP that showed different results, and to me it looked like a comilation of results from Google, Altavista, and Fast. Somehow I had an impression that quite a lot of weight was given to the Fast Serps based on their extensive link analysis, but I could be run.
My best is that they're going to be using results from all the engines.
In another thread someone poasted that they went to a focus group where the model seemed similar to Looksmart - but I still think the results would combine the databases, including the directories.
