Why doesn't Ms just hire Google to resolve their searches ??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Really.  Pay the price and deliver a better product to us users; e.g. $5k for SQL.  We deserve a good search engine where we're n need.  When i got problems i use the Ms Forum search first; because i'm loyal.   however, too many times i have to go Google, do the search, and then select the TechNet forum hits.  Just hire Google for the search, apply an Ms filter, and save me some grief.  (and bury Bing while your at it.)

    I have found that if you use Bing directly, it works much better than if you use it via the forum search. Almost as well as Google in fact.
     
    After many bad experiences, I never use the forum search feature.
