I Feel for Live

Sometimes (just sometimes) I feel bad for Microsoft. Last week they announced improvements to their Live search engine. And to their credit, these days live returns results that are pretty much on par with Google, it’s image search is pretty, the maps are spectacular (it might be the online mapping product that uses RSS in some from), yet they can’t seem to get a foothold in the search market at all and they sure aren’t getting much mindshare in the blogosphere.

I wonder if us geeks are just too proud to use a Live product at this point. What happens when Microsoft surpasses Google’s search? Will anyone even notice?
