I found this quite strange:
Microsoft using the fact that they have leverage with companies to get what they want. The question is whether companies have enough power over their own employees to do anything. But I'd have to admit that sometimes I do use Live Search and... I can't say I've been satisfied with the answers that it gives. This is not a scientific conclusion, but subjectively there is a lot of room for improvement yet. I do like that they have done a lot on trying to understand some types of questions and provide dictionary/encyclopedia answers to them, but the search itself is just not too good.
