    While the relevancy is important I don’t think you can discount design completely. Many people don’t notice the design until you strip it away. So asking people if it matters may not get you the real answer because they don’t know what Bing would look like without it. I think that if they can offer relevant results and design they may have an advantage on Google. You also need to remember that Microsoft is saying that they are not a search engine but a “decision engine”. They want to help you make the right choice not just give the best selection of choices.
    Do I think they will beat Google with this, no, but I do think that eventually someone will and this may be the first step on the way that happening.
