Hi there
didn't like it -- In any case I like my OWN wallpapers rather than some random stuff probably geared to a whole different generation.

I instinctively also don't trust any of these non standard "3rd party toolbars" or search facilities -- usually SPAM results in one form or another.

I'll NEVER EVER buy from Amazon again either -- nothing wrong with theirprice structure or speed of delivery -- but after buying a few items I'm INCESSANTLY sent offers about further products which I neither need nor want and there doesn't seem to be any way of switching this stuff off other than setting up a new email address only for spam / junk mail.

Probably never happen but when you buy something you should be given the option whether or not you are interested in receiving further offers etc. A few sites do this such as Eurostar (train company running services through the Channel Tunnel between London, Brussels and Paris).

Cheers
jimbo

You can choose to keep your own wallpaper.

It's MS supplied - does that make it 3rd party?

That's got nothing to do with the Bing bar

I'm giving it a go in one of my VM's - you can pin it to the top middle of your screen. Between that and the clicking+autohide it is actually rather unobtrusive.

Although it's necessity is rather questionable. All it really does is eliminate 'one click' of the opening of your browser.

Maybe later versions will make it more 'feature rich'.

There definately is a difference, although it seems like google offers slightly more intelligent searches (finds more of what you were searching for), if you were to compare the two. I both like and use Bing because it seems more clean and has a nice image with it, and I don't surf the web too much other than by using my favorites.

I use Bing desktop on a couple of my computers, but I notice there is a few seconds delay with it enabled vs the normal desktop (to be expected, and hardly burdensome). I also notice that using it is just as easy as using Start>Internet, or clicking the icon on the desktop/taskbar. So I hide the Bing bar at the top and just enjoy the different picture every day (not to mention I've got into the habit of clicking the little IE logo instead; I hardly ever think of the Bing bar).

Perhaps someone will think something is up when one day they see me turn on my computer to the image of flowers o.0

As in this thread, the name change is constant. Do note that the search engine is advertised as a decision engine, so it will be different. Just what that means is not known by me.
