The problem with Bing...

When I use a search engine, I expect it to find the things I am searching for and present them in a reasonable ranking order.

True, it's not as bad as when it started but still: 3.5/10 - must try harder.

Bing-- What good is it?

I found "Bing Bar installed on my XP machine and didn't realize it was installed with the Windows update, so I attempted to remove it. It destroyed my copy of Windows XP ans I had to reformat. It's back, and it's still on my Windows explorer top menu bars. I'm switching to Konqueror. You know what that means... Good bye Windows hello OpenSuSe 12.1. Now put that in your pipe and smoke it Microsoft!
