Bing?The name is not elegant for it sounds like 'Disease' in Chinese language.

They aren't censoring anything, talk about jumping to conclusions. Their indexing just isn't as fast as Google's: search for it now.

Bing is very good!
To test it you must select United States!!The search results are great like google ones and has very interesting images and video search options.
If you put another country Bing works like live.com search engine!

i searched 7201.0.090601-1516_x86fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULFRER_EN_DVD.iso with many results..

Bing is not too great. I love how they display and let you interact with images and videos. Their bird's eye view for maps are amazing. Having said that, the general design of the site (the front page for instance) doesn't do anything for me. Their search (which is their main motivating factor) isn't very good. Doing a search for me or my coworker returns 0 results relating to the company we work for. Google finds it. I've worked there a bit over 6months, and he's been there over a year.

Bing just doesn't find it. Comparing many more searches as well, and Bing is still pretty disgraceful. Google will probably implement similar techniques that Bing does, and when that happens Bing just won't matter

I love Bing, it gives me the results I want so far.

It looks nice too, looks more.. up-to-date, compared to google and yahoo (my opinion).

I even set it as my homepage =P

I saw a commercial on TV last night for Bing. Not a bad commercial.

Bing has a built in 'security' ... it will warn about the site you searched for (or didn't search for) if it's bad. It will still let you enter it, but the warning is there.
