    Nothing. That doesn't mean companies can't try providing a different service.

    Microsoft is well aware of Google's prowess, that doesn't mean they can't try and penetrate that audience.

    BTW I use Google exclusively, I just prefer the way Google works over Bing. Doesn't mean I hate or haven't used Bing, I'm just use to Google. This is what Microsoft has to overcome.

    I wasn't a Windows 8 fan till I tried it. Microsoft is hoping once users try Bing, they'll like it. Nothing wrong with that.

    To Google has become a noun, don't remember anybody saying I am going to Bing for something.

    Ok, now for next question, is anybody using IE any more.?
    I'm actually on IE right now since I seen an article claiming how it's more safe than Chrome. :P

    The phrase "Google It" is used thousands and perhaps millions of times a day but
    "Bing It" i have never heard of Yet.
