I refuse to use something with as ridiculous a name as bing, I don't even give a crap sideways how good it is.
...Oh, and that it's run by MS, THE most oppressive, aggressive, monopolistic software company on earth. Why should I favor them with my service? It's bad enough I've paid them for a whole bunch of seriously overpriced windows licenses over the years.
