Very interested, though only as a publisher - and not a user - at this stage.

From what I hear, Microsoft's desktop tool, which features a logo painfully reminiscent of Google's, presently offers superior features to the offering from Google. If MSFT manages to deliver a superior product and/or figure out how to embed search into future OS releases without attracting too much interest from competition regulatory authorities, this could serve as a major tool in their arsenal for grabbing search market share back from the big G. That would subsequently affect every publisher whose business depends on unpaid search engine placement.
