Not buying it.
I launched a new site 5 weeks ago and I submitted it to both the Google and Microsoft webmaster centers. I also submitted sitemaps to both.
Google - within 1 day the index and each main category was indexed. 3 days later inner pages began to appear.
Bing - still waiting, nothing indexed.
"Faster" is relative and Bing is still as slow as molasses when compared to G.
edit: I'm still seeing images in Bing being linked to sites that hotlinked them from another site, it SHOULD be a simple matter to ONLY link an image to the site it is HOSTED on ... no?
