MSDN Search now powered by MSN

Most people probably know this already, but it was new to me: the MSDN search is now powered by Windows Live (aka MSN Search). My Microsoft ISV buddy told me this (Hi K. :-)) and he is right about the increased speed and search quality.

I tried some search terms and got much better results than I remember getting from MSDN before (I have been using Google to search the MSDN lately because the old MSDN search wasn’t that great).

The new MSDN search is greatly appreciated, because contrary to the past, Google doesn’t list MSDN pages as the first result for Windows API searches anymore.
