Maybe, maybe not. Depends on how Microsoft develop their search engine. Google still has the edge, and will continue to do so for a long time I think.

I'm not really bothered about which name is at the top of the page so long as a nice big list of stuff arrives soon after I hit "enter"

Exactly, as long as that list contains relevant links as opposed to a load of ads, I'm happy.

I guess MS would love everyone to be "Bing-ing or Yahoo-ing" but it just doesn't roll of the tongue as easily as "Googling"
