    I have heard a rumour that Microsoft is going to get into the search battle. As a sysadmin that uses the MSKB extensively I have one little observation. When looking for a relevant article, I have found it FAR more likely that I will find the MSKB article thru google than using Microsoft's own search engine in the Knowledge Base. Any comments?

    I'm (mostly Wink) an Application Developer and I have the same experience when trying to find somethin within MSDN or anywhere on Microsoft's site.

    I don't like that. I don't want to use Google (don't ask me why: I would rather use MSN Search instead, because of my personal choice). So, it's good that Microsoft wants to do something about this.

    Something is going on, watch in your web server logs,
    I think that you will or allready have seen a huge increase in hits from the MSNBot, and it also indexing almost everything.

    Up 35% in June of all search agents

    It  has also been my experience that MS searching is abysmal. Google is far better. So, as a regular user of all things MS, I can only hope that their investment in this area will reap benefits for all of their products that utilize search.

    Does anyone from MS have a sense for how distributed the search technologies will be throughout the products?
