For the first time MSN if giving me more traffic by 25%. I know it's Y. results, so does this mean that people are realizing that they get the same results from their default S.E?

Well the results in MSN does differ slightly from Yahoo, so maybe this means you have better rankings in MSN.

I can't speak for others. My one (UFO related) site sees maybe 400 unique visitors per day,
which translates to something like 600 hits/day.

Here are the numbers for the last 8 days:

1 Google 1,324
2 Yahoo 234
3 MSN 115
4 AskJeeves 21
5 AOL Search 18
6 Altavista 16
7 Netscape 8
8 Mamma 4
9 AllTheWeb 3

So its Yahoo over MSN by 2 to 1 in my narrow niche.

I should add that I have better ratings for my main
keywords in roughly that same order, i.e. Google best,
followed by Yahoo, then MSN.

Altavista give me good placement, but is little used.

Hope this helps. - Larry

For me it was msn generating traffic. Anyway I have lost all my rankings in Yahoo and msn few days ago. I think Yahoo / msn (Inktomi) is updating the database or have changed the rankings criteria.
