Microsoft released Bing, its new search engine, today. If you have doubts about the new product, you’re not alone. Here’s one good reason to hate Bing.
The gripe is a non sequitur. First, most Linux distros ship with X Windows. Second, many users would legitimately need to search for Linux and Windows (or Microsoft) in a common search for interoperativity purposes. Microsoft’s search engine may see more of those searches since (on the Windows side) it does make sense to look for a supported solution and users could reason that Microsoft’s search engine would index MSDN, KB and TechNet articles higher (thus, potentially reducing the time necessary to find a supported solution).
I don’t think it’s an out and out reason to hate Bing, but I think it’s telling. Microsoft will push their agenda first and foremost before taking into account what their customers really need. I have no doubt that the above search results aren’t coincidental and it should be interesting to perform other searches and see how Microsoft pushes themselves to the front. What’s more is that this is a clever marketing tactic rather than a reason to hate them.
It wasn’t the search results that I necessarily find telling, it’s the COMPLETELY OVER-THE-TOP and UNNECESSARY LARGE background image. When I use a search engine, I’m trying to find some information, not view hi-res photos. It’s like the moderately cool-kid trying to be the way cool kid by wearing all kinds of name-brand logos, but just ends up being ridiculous in the end.
That’s why you should dislike Bing.
In regards to John’s comments, are you kidding? The top 3 branching searches are “windows”, “microsoft” and “vista” before ANYTHING else? Vista is the most ludicrous of all, and it comes before “commands” or “download”?!? You are simply fooling yourself if you believe this is anything other than a flat out attempt to stack the deck for their own purposes at the expense of the user experience. It’s their engine and they can do what they want, but don’t make excuses for them, call it like it is man.
The background photo is quite in place. Some days I go to Google even when I don’t have any business there just to see whether they have a Doodle that day. The site’s front page is otherwise quite simple.
Hello Bing, who is your brother:) said Alan Ford
Every time I search for something on there a stupid adult friend finder ad pops up .Bing sucks and is so LAMe.
I also HATE BING – nothing but continuous popups – something called Local.com is always on the screen when I try to do a search – info received from Bing just leads to ads, not actual information requested – it is nothing but a commercial billboard – I am switching to Yahoo or whatever just to get away from Bing !!
All those damn pop up adds and now they have invaded the NY times.
Most of the people here are haters and idiots… popups from local.com? Dude, clean your PC from spyware and go blame whoever created your anti-virus (I know you’d say Microsoft now )
Leave things the hell alone! Dam’t I’m tired of the constant change of everything and you know damm well the govrn’t is looking at everything. Stupid Jug Ears.
Honestly, bing looks nice. Has some nice features. Anyone with a broadband connection can’t be that frustrated with having an image loaded. C’mon, it takes maybe a few seconds, if that, and reloads basically instantly each subsequent time. Is anyone really in such a hurry to search that waiting those few seconds will make that much of a difference? I’m guessing 99.99% of the time, no.
That said, I’m sticking with google. I don’t really see a need to switch. Bing isn’t that much better, if it’s better at all. So why bother having to consciously switch that already ingrained habit of going to google.com? That’s the problem with bing. It really doesn’t offer anything so spectacular that lazy asses like me will consciously make the effort to re-wire my brain to think bing.com before google.com. Same thing with cuil.com (remember them?)
If anything, I’ll (maybe) add bing to my list of alternative websites to check out if google.com doesn’t give me the results I want.
Lets not be too hard on Bing, i think it may actually be quite good. Also has anyone tried typing “Bing” into google? According to its search predictions “Bing” is not shown in the top searches which i find hard to believe. So Google are at it as well.
I personally don’t trust Google with my information since they do record a lot of stuff. They are probably sending live feeds of everything we do from Chrome, Google, Gmail, etc straight to the US government. They even admited they comply with the government. And with the vast amount of information their system collects for “ad” pourpose its crazy.
Do you think this is a fair?

I simply hate the damn search engine. i am mad that my internet explorer makes actually need to type in another site to search on because if I want to search on the main page it automatically does Bing! It clutters the page with alot of uneccessary pages. I hate that. Sometimes the stuff doesn’t have anything to do with my topic. I think they should stop this search engine or at least give me the option to take it off of my internet explorer.
i hate bing, simply because when i type in a defined search, say “anything basically in quotes”, i’m most likely to fine something, or what i want, on google than on Bing!
Bing Sucks. There are selfish Bastards
I’ve never gone to the site by choice but was forced to look at search results for the actual domain name I typed in 3 times before I actually got there. When something is forced down your throat your immediate reaction is to cough it up and spit it out.
Why does it have to be so damn difficult to find what I want? Thats why I hate bing. It’s too complicated! I LOVE GOOGLE!
It’s all about money! Microsoft has never cared about the comsumer, why should they start now? Bing is the worst search engine I have ever used, what a pain to use.
they did not even ask if i wanted it.they just shoved it up my exhaust vent.thanks for nothing.give me the choice.get that bilge off my home page.
I hate bing. it sucks. google is the best. nothing can replace it!
I hate bing. I got a new laptop and it has bing as an automatic toolbar and the only reason i keep it on is because it has a quick link to msn which is my email carrier (hotmail). I typed in how to clear bing search history and got a larger variety of crap than google. At least on google toolbar, the history was easy to clear. And I dont know what ya’ll’s problem is but when i google bing I have a link to bing, news articles on it and websites about bing, so get your computer checked or something, and why would you be worried about the government checking. Unless you searched something that might be illeagal and make lose your court case… you should be safe. I’m sure gov. has everthing wired, even bing, just out looking for predators not if your searching something innocent.
Google is best http://miroashis.blogspot.com
I select Google.because google is best http://porjatanbd.blogspot.com
i hate bing. i miss the msn pics site becasue i would copy the pics & edit them & use them and now when i try that with bing & i’m using windows paint it gives me an error message.
I hate Bing because when I type in my website name, wildworldphoto in its Search box, my website does not come up at all in its results despite having submitted it to Bing. When I type it into Google’s search box, it is Number 2!! Even if I type in wildworldphoto.net it is not listed in Bing at all, but it is listed number 1 on Google!! Bing sucks in my opinion.
bing sucks d*** its just talk i have to go to google.com just to get away from bing .bing.com said that google rambles plese .one day my cousin who is young whent to bing.com she went to images and typed in cats and then this pic of a man with his penis out came up and then i scrooled down very fast to she radom pic not one was about a cat….

PLEASE, Is there any way possible to get rid of bing? I HATE IT.
I bought a laptop that came with Bing as my default search and I hate it. I want my yahoo back. Well I did get yahoo on my browser but Bing is still there looking at me with disdain. I think it knows I tried to kill it.
Anyway, I tried Pauls suggestion for deleting Bing and I can’t do step 5-it looks nothing like that on my screen. What I did do was delete it from the list in my internet options. Also there is no arrow next to the magnifying glass for Bing. So I guess I will have to live with that.
Bottom line, is everything that Bing has to offer when i search for something is useless in comparison to Google..never use it and seems to be just for selling their agenda, as Microsoft is known for
I HATE BING TOO !!!
I TRY TO ACCESS MY MAIL BOX, BUT THE ?%/%$”?%$/*?$ BING PAGE COMES UP INSTEAD !!!
i HAVE TO CLIC HERE & THERE TO FINALLY ACCESS MY MAIL BOX !
ARE THEY NUTS OR WHAT ?
I AM GOING TO CLOSE MY HOTMAIL ACCOUNT FOR THAT REASON.
GOOGLE & GMAIL IS THE BEST OF THEM ALL !
MICROSOFT U SUX !!! (LIKE ALWAYS)
why must i miss active threads. just for those that come after me. yahoo new uses Bing search. so having yahoo doesn’t keep you from the bad of bing. i too, am in morning over the loss.
i hate bing i searched innocent things and it brought up porn that is uncalled for i searched the same with google and got what i wanted.
I hate bing – it’s unnecessary. It doesn’t work as well as nice, friendly google, and it pushes microsoft whenever possible. It’s bullshit.
I hate it and I want it gone.
Thats Fake! Try it!
I hate bingg soo muchh…seriuoslyyy this site is unneccesary people should just stick to google.
I cannot stand to have bing on my computer I want it gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everytime I try to use my computer there it is in the way of everything, it wont go away, I hate it!!!!
Is there a senator or congressperson out there that would please do everyone a bing favor and get BING off the internet!! PLEASE!!!
bing freezes my computer..i hate it!!!
For all this is worth, I might as well get out my boy scout compas and a canteen of water and start wandering around trying to find my search. I guess in a country with 50 states being only one state off is close enough.
bing freezes my comp. i uninstalled explorer 8 because it dominated the page. it’s still everywhere i look. i think i might just quit msn all together. i really don’t enjoy having junk forced on me. AOL and Yahooooo are going to really benefit from this. new people and they’ll know not to force crap on users. really…. is this MY computrer? or theirs? unless i take programming classes i’m at their mercy to RESPECT my choices. they don’t. so yeah, i’m going to yahoo.
I HATE GOOGLE, i have many problem with igoogle on all my computer and virtual and webbroswer I have many freeze … maybe a physical line problem.
I PREFER BING because I have no problem with it (strange !)and I found that the search result are more pertinent.
No the only thing that I dislike in bing is taht there are no page like igoogle or maybe don’t found it.
I hate bing because it is sh*t just another big companie forcing itself on you i sayy fuck off
ALL YOU BING HATERS ARE MESSED UP. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THE CHIZ YOUR TALKING ABOUT. BING RULES. YOU FOOLS JUST CAN’T TAKE THE FACT THAT BING IS BEFORE GOOGLE.

Bing kills google at everything.. Yes, I understand why you love google.. For one so you can waste your time on searching something page by page on google when you can search it on bing and it be right there on the first page… Second is so you can site at your computer all day and post blogs like this.. Thirdly, because your more then likely hard headed and don’t like change.. =D keep doing what your doing… It will get you everywhere you wanna be.
bing lover is awesome both my parents work for microsoft. my mom works for the store and my dad sells software.all you bing haters just look at bill gates hes th richest man in the world and you do not see anyone like him working for google now do you
Because of the Bing incident, I no longer regard Microsoft as a trusted site (or company for that matter). If this decision was based on economics, it was a very poor (Obamian)one as I will soon switch to another Operating system and browser unless it is corrected in the near future via MS updates.
FIRST OF ALL THERE IS NO BING INCIDENT AT ALL I WOULD TRUST BING WITH MY LIFE.MICROSOFT ALWAYS PUTS CUSTOMERS FIRST. I KNOW THIS BECAUSE MY DAD AND MOM BOTH WORK FOR MICROSOFT. I WILL ONLY USE BING UNLESS MICROSOFT COMES OUT WITH ANOTHER SEARCH ENGINE. NOW HERES A LITTLE SECRET I’M LETTING YOU GUYS IN ON. MICROSOFT IS COMING UP WITH A GAME SYTEM THAT CAN READ YOUR HAND MOTIONS. INSTEAD OF USING AN X BOX REMOTE OR A WII REMOTE THE ONLY REOMOTE S YOUR HAND IT’S SELF. AND THIS IS KIND OF PERSONAL BUT I CAN NOT BELIEVE THE HEALTH CARE BILL PASSED. I AM SO MAD STUPID HARRY REED OBAMA AND NANY POLOCY ANYWAY I LOVE BING
STOP WHO CARES IF U DONT LIKE BING OR IF U DO
first of all google is run by a bunch of flaming liberals. and second they try to control the worlds data. so if you search bill o riely it will not say the truth this is why bing rules
Firstly what is wrong with Liberals? If the world were more liberal you wouldn’t have crap like Bing stuffed in your face abd Secondly bill o’reilly and Fux News aren’t worth the cheap toilet paper there scripts are written on.
Everybody was crying out for something differfent and Google filled that space, Innovative and frsh.. MS just steal a good idea and make it suck.
If you search with Bing you’re missing out on half the Net.. (some crap I agree)
Old ladies and 12 year olds search with Bing as they don’t have the sense to chnage the settings.
Liberals cheat their way into everything thing and try to take away our rights. FOX NEWS tells the TRUTH unlike obama who tries COVER it up. HE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE CALLED PRESIDENT WITH THE THINGS HE IS DOING.EVERYTHING HE IS DOING IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL. HIS PLAN IS TO TAKE AWAY ALL OUR FREEDOMS. PRETTY SOON WE ARE ALL GONNA END UP LIKE CUBA.THAT IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH LIBERALS. EVERYONE PRACTICALLY KNOWS THAT HE IS NOT FROM THE US IF HE WAS HE WOULD SHOW HIS BIRTH RECORDS. AND HE DIDN’T SO THERES ALL THE EVIDENCE RIGHT THERE AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW I’M ONLY A KID
see no one has written. that just shows that i’m right
No, “Bingrules”. No one has responded because you’re retarded, and there is no reason to have a gunfight with someone who lacks ammunition.
Also, you turned your argument away from the subject (which was a debate about whether or Bing is a decent search engine or NOT, into a conservative diatribe against liberalism), and you began to crazy-rave. What a shocker. Didn’t see that one coming, you punk-ass loon. Why don’t you go back to your school campus, and pick on all those kids who are gonna grow up to make a lot more money than you are, gonna marry a lot better quality of women than you will, and who are gonna do a lot more important things in life than you are ever going to even imagine doing? Go on and get about your business of being a lame, bitter “coulda-been”, while your peers (especially the ones you disdain so much) go on to better, more productive lives. You’re a hateful, ugly turd.
No, wait. Ignore me. Go tune your radio to Rush Lumphog’s B.S. channel, and let that fat, drug-addicted liar give you some excuse to feel like you have some justification for your worthless existence. Then you can come back here and insult decent people in the sure and certain knowlege that your god approves of your willing ignorance.
Nobody replied because you’re not worth replying to. I only responded because I’m trying to speak above your waterheaded ignorance; I’m actually talking to the other idiots who agree with your stupid misconceptions. You all know that the world would be a better place if you could just murder everyone who disaqrees with your filthy ideology. We used to call you people “Nazis”, but that’s no longer politically-correct. Now we just have to call you “conservatives”. And hope for the best.
“bing rules”. The worst kind of idiot. A fool with a keyboard and an internet connection. If he and his kind had their way, nobody would have the ability to argue with him, and his naked retardation.
Nothing but love for ya, you waste of DNA!
shut it johnny. liberals always cheat. you a huge piece of bull crap.and you go to stupid obama and let him shove toilet paper up your butt. you are only writing that cause you wish you are right but you know you are wrong.and btw i’m in third grade and i’m a girl. so shut your big butt and lay on your lazy butt believing everything you hear.your only saying this because you are a fat liberal. you know what they say, if your a liberal you have no brain, if your conservitive, you have a heart and a brain.se you sucker you just got pwnd.you know obama is wrong you know that liberals are stupid idiots like you and your just mad cause a little 9 yr. old is right and your wrong. and now your gonna take it all out on a little girl. and you have no prove that sean hannity and ruch limba and j.d hayworth are wrong. conservitives have prove that obama is a stupid idiot like you butt poo brain no hearted liberals. first piece of evidence nobama refused to show his birth records. clue: he wasn’t born in this country so ha
bing rules is totally right. i used to be a fucking liberal but now i’m conservitive
jhonny fucker is an ass hole is wrong
At my age I hate it when things are forced on me. I do not need to see the BING site when I get out of Hotmail. If they want to take on the market let them prove that they are better not force it on their users. I would love to find a way to get rid of the automatic thing. There must a f…… A…. behing this. This is not how to gain market.
your the one who got F********* COMPUTER THAT COMES WITH BING AND THAT HAS WINDOWS SO SHUT THE f*** UP
I agree with Gilles
you faggots dont know what you taking about. bing rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
first of all, nothing is being forced on you. if you have msn you get bing because its microsot. (microsoft rules).if you get a pc you get bing on it. so nothing is forced on YOU. YOU force it on YOURSELF. so basically i’m right. and buy the way microsoft has 11% of stock market. you dont know anything cause your just a kid. yes i will say i am a kid but i know a lot about microsoft.why? because both my parents work for microsoft. microsoft DOES care about the costumers. i would know because my dad goes on really long bussiness trips just to meet with them. and he takes them out to eat and gives them free stuff. and people, there is no need to use fould language. using foul language doesn’t solve any problems.
Bing is horrible, i have been involved with computers and the internet ever since it was invented, i know a bad product when i see it. Bury Bing, Boycotte Bing. Google is King.
bings is garbage it is a shame it has been forced on us since when does microsoft set rules msn.website should of told their coustomers ahead of time before forcing the pop up garbage on the website i don;t care what you say it is impossible to use i never had any problems with googles
everyone just shut teh fuck up lz\ul i am rite bcuz i used bing from wen i woz born n like yur goolgelsl is xzhsit so dont ask me for prooves because i am rite and my dad work for google and he is a prick
first of all I noticed bing brought up a lawyers website when i searched a type of bird. second the toolbar is pre-installed on windows 7 so it is forced third bing is copied its no different from google except for the fact that bing sucks and I did research and only 16% of the people that use bing use the filter features and only 8% use the extra features its not that different telling by those results
shut up people how many times do i have to say YOU FORCE IT ON YOUR STINKING SELF YOU FAT LARDS. and that person said bing is just like google so if you like google and bing is like google then why don’t you like it. i know more about microsoft then all you retards will ever know. oh and notice how retarded bombnail rhymed bing with king
first of all, to “fuck off”, who cares if you used bing from when you were born. obviously you can’t even speak like an educated human being so the way you were raised is probably not helping your argument at all. you’re just clearly full of yourself…like bing. and lot’s of people’s dads are pricks, you’re nothing special.
anywhoo, I’m just sick of how bing pushed it’s way into everything. Now I find it everywhere on MSN pages and it’s just annoying. Also, I used to like to read the slideshows on MSN.com where it has a picture and tells you something interesting….but with bing it’s all like “this person was famous for their arrest!” and you have to click on the link to find out what the eff they’re talking about, and it doesn’t even take you to the answer, it just lists search results. If I wanted to do a search, I would have done that to begin with, and on google because they keep it relatively simple. I didn’t have a problem with bing before, but they really have just been too full of themselves and in your face. The only good thing about bing was when they were featured on the Colbert Report.
F*CK OFF BING!
I think bing can be useful but not all the time.It is sort of new and isen’t as smart as google. I think google is way better than bing cuz sometimes bing pisses me off!!!
GOOGLE MAY BE OLDER, BUT THEY STICK WITH THE OLD STUFF. MICROSOFT IS OPEN 2 NEW IDEAS, AND SHUT UP PAUL, YOUR A STUPID DIRTY MOUTHED MONKEY SNOT WITH TOILET PAPER STUCK ON YOUR BUTT. BING IS SKILLAGE.(SKILLAGE MEANS AWESOME)
What bugs me about Bing, especially with the links from MSN is the illusion that we’re linking to content, when really it’s linking to search results.
Gee, if I’d wanted to search, I would have used a *search*engine* — not an aggregator, like MSN.
Poor design choice, MSN!
I HATE BING BECAUSE ITS NOT GOOGLE!!!
Google has served my needs well. I have not asked BING to intrude on my computer, and to try to force me to keep it there. To me, it feels like arm-twisting, or strong-arming me through an unwelcome technology. Please GET OFF MY COMPUTER!
I HATE BING!
1 HATE BING!
I HATE BING!
THEY ECSICTENS NO INFORMATION!
Bing rewards fixes everything you people are whining about Most of you lot sound like kids arguing on the playground, it shows what this country is coming to.
bing is like microsoft deceptive, intrusive, full of holes, a snoop, unwanted trash, almost impossible to get rid of, no advantage or reason use, there are no good words for bing!
All you Google lovers, you ROCK! All you Bing lovers – Why love Bing!?! Bing is so bad, they stole Google’s search results!!! If I type something on Google, I get tons of useful info. But Bing doesn’t give me ANYTHING i can use!!! I HATE BING,
I HATE BING,
I HATE BING!!!
Bing tried, but turned out to be a sad, epic super-fail of a search engine. >:P
