BING Is Not Google

Microsoft vs. google is really going to be a battle for a long run. With Mr. Gates entering into the search engine business, microsoft has shown its desperation ...again. Even its windows 7 does not seem to enjoy any credibility. Like they say , "You never test the depth of a river with both feet". And with BING , Microsoft has just done that. People in the open source world have renamed it to my-crow-shaft :D .

I am sure if they were to expand BING , FOSS geeks would call it "BING Is Not Google".

Be it the flashy Ajax working over a randomly selected background, or its low priority to google related search results, BING has begun its journey towards setting another bad example first it was with an operating system , and now a search engine.

A friend of mine mimics the famous dialog from the movie Matrix .... for Mr. Gates instead of Mr. Anderson....
" Why, mr. Gates, why? why, why do you do it? why, why get up? why keep fighting? do you believe you're fighting for something, for more than your survival(of IE)? can you tell me what it is, do you even know? is it freedom(open source) or truth(that MS sucks) , perhaps peace - could it be for love? illusions, mr. Gates.......vagaries of perception. temporary constructs of pathetic coders trying desperately to justify an existence (of a software) that is without meaning or purpose. and all of them as artificial as the perception that u will survive. "
