    This is just... wrong! I sure wouldn't like to be an employee in a company that would require me to use Live Search.

    I use Live Search mainly because I prefer the site's setup to Google, it's a lot more flexible and has some nifty features. However Microsoft aren't going to catch up until they get the basics right, and I keep finding myself having to revert to Google when Live Search doesn't yield the right results...after all, the biggest part of a search engine is, well, its search engine.

    Live search is franky crap. I use google because it's fast, accurate and has minimal ads.

    Having to use a Win OS at work is bad enough, now they want to bribe companies to only use their search engine, please.. :eyebrow:

    I like the idea of getting a corporate company to all use the same search engine, but their method to achieving it I dislike. It makes sense having all employees working from the same search engine - but at the end of the day, it'll be Google.

    The only way they can get people to use their search then?
    I will always use Google, it gets me what I need quickly and accurately. Every other search is either ad bloated or just plain crap.
