Bill Gates: Google Is Cool

John Battelle points to a Newsweek article that is just fun to read. The article concerns Microsoft's belated but powerful entry into the search game. Bill mentions how Google is so cool because they all dress in black. The article also explains how Microsoft rejiggered interanl resources in eighteen months to create a search engine on par with Google's, and in nine months to create a possibly superior desktop search tool. A portion of the Desktop Search team came from Longhorn and WinFS, bringing ideas from there into the MSN release. Also, Microsoft believes its desktop search is superior because it has a proper interface, while Google's web / desktop hybrid is more confusing.
