I have been using Bing for the last few days. It is good - the results are more or less equal to Google's. ...google might have a slight edge, but I have not yet had a problem finding what I am looking for.

Two things I really like about bing:
1) The home page graphic. It is a much nicer thing to see then Google's standard logo. On the down side, the graphic and "hints" assiciated with the graphic are clearly targeted to a more...simple audience then Google. It would be nice if the information were more educational.

2) This is the big one. With Google as my home page I would find myself - almost instinctively - going to the home page, clicking on "news" and seeing what's happening. I would guess I would do this 20 times per day. Anytime I was momentarilly distracted, this would be my course of action. ...with Bing, I don't have this distraction. If I want news, I have to actually type in the URL. Of course, I don't want news, I am just distracted. ...so it helps me re-focus.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but it has certainly helped me.

Oh - and this is cool:
