      This and Office.

      I do know exactly what you are talking about thought OP. I tried using Bing's advertising last year and when I was trying to sign up I kept getting errors. When I called them and talked to someone over there they said just give it a little while, it will proabbly work when I try it again. WTF is that all about? They have a long way to go before they start taking traffic from Google.

      LOL! But that is spot on. MS stays in business because they are
      a kick butt software company....

      But MS has lost billion$ online and continue to bleed to google.

      The question should be, why does MS even attempt PPC?
      Well, instead of losing $1 billion, they lose $500 million.

      If MS cut the online bit, the fallout from a white flag to
      google would be mind boggling.

      It's about time someone ranted against an online entity
      the way they do against google. I'm still looking for
      the rant against MS and how they ruined yahoo.

    I think MS has Bing setup as a tax write off.

    Windows and Office. sold over 1 billion licenses of each.

    if you sell anything 1 billion times over twice, then you can afford failed experiments like adcenter.
