MSN Has a New Search Engine

Apparently MS has a new search engine to compete with Google. One article I read said that they seek to provide answers. Maybe this is supposed to be something like Ask Jeeves?
In any case, work has been nuts and I haven't had a chance to read up on it or try it out. I went to today to do a search and of course typed in "linux" since I wanted my very first search on to be memorable.
The first result is a "sponsored link", AKA an advertisement purchased by... Microsoft! And it's tag line says that windows outperforms Linux. I guess they thought that was my question. Or maybe they knew I was just being a jerk and so they are likewise just being jerks.
They're setting themselves apart from Google already!
