I kinda like it. Has a certian ring to it. Like "well just bing it" or "run a bing search" or my fav "I binged it and found this out"

Bing sounds like a fail to me.

Microsoft have never been any good at web/search stuff and I just cant see a $100 million ad campaign making the slightest difference.

I like when they keep things simple, like Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, and 7. Though I would have preferred a 2009 or 2010 for the name, rather than 7.

Microsoft needs a new approach. How about before changing the name of very important things, at least have a reason to do so, and even further at least make the new name one that makes sense.

Microsoft does not need to change the name of the search engine but it does need to get people to use it

A re-launch of live search as Bing my work but personally I doubt it unless the actual product is better that the competition, (currently Google), People don't use Google because it's called Google, they use it because it finds them what they're searching for.
