I'm all for some alternatives to Google but going from Google being dominant in searches to MSFT wouldn't be an improvement for the industry. Bing is good mostly because it learned from the success of Google, but if it reall was only up to MSFT, Bing would only work on IE which would only work with ActiveX which would only work with Windows, etc. Not exactly a company with a good track record of openness and following standards. A locked-in nightmare.
