It isn't that Bing is getting that much better. What's happening is that Google is getting worse. For most of the keywords that I follow Google and Bing return about the same results on the first page but in a slightly different order. Before panda Google clearly gave a better result set.
The bigger issue for Microsoft's Bing (and other search engines) is that Google has become synonymous with search.
I'd go so far as to say Google has become synonymous with the internet for most people. The very first search term people type into in bing is probably "google".
