A little while back I mentioned that we were using the data gathered from the recent crawls as part of a preview of an algorithmic search engine that we are building. More details on the preview are now available at at [sandbox.msn.com....]
We would really like any and all feedback. You can post it here or send it to us using the various feedback mechanisms on the results page.

Nice clean interface. Seems like it take more links to get in than Google or maybe the db is just smaller during the test phase.
However, on one particular three word query phrase that I follow, of the first 45 results, 31 of them were from domains that we run. Of the first 30, 29 were ours.
Not complaining, but with these kinds of results, I've started to dust off the Retire-in-Tahiti brochures.
Still, very interesting.
As a side note, the link:http://www.domain.com command appears to be showing a very comprehensive list of links.

will be interesting to see/hear what others notice...
also, is msd legit? if so, WebmasterWorld is attracting most/all of the players, which is good, imho. ;)
edit to add: seeing a lot of multiple listings for domains. while as a webmaster i like it for my keywords, as a user it's a little annoying. i want a variety...

Glad to know that those who thought it was just a big hype/vapourware are coming into line.
As for the search results, not bad at all - noticed a lot of my sites in there, excellent :)
But yeah, theres that problem of domain clustering, is there any way to turn it off msndude?
You know when the top 5 results for a 400,000+ overture search term that is extremely competitive all have PR0 that something is not quite right.
I disagree. Google PR has zero credability these days. It is bought and paid for like a cheap.... nm. You get the picture. There are many pr0 pages that are way more relaevant then pr8 pages. Sorry that is just how it is.
