Because of all that 'history', I have to wonder why two technologies? Why two research centers? What could they have going on that requires what appears to be two seperate entities/factions?
I heard back from Eytan Seidman regarding how this new one only crawls one very remote, very obsure file as they are experimenting and will never crawl a site completely. Huh? One file and an obscure one at that? <shrug>
http://research.msn.com? <-mebe markis00 could provide UA string?

This MSN bot is great technology.
Lots of people get confused between MSN bot and MSR bot, just so if you're confused:
MSNbot - Microsoft Network Bot - Used for the search engine currently in development
MSRbot - Microsoft Research Bot - Used for the Microsoft Research project or something, they have labs at many locations.
