Yes, learning to develop a search engine "twice as good" (as Google). That's
the way they phrased it anyway...
This could turn out to be another case where a poorer product is imposed on
many people. Take for instance the fact the most people still use Internet
Explorer for their Web surfing. If it had to face competition and be
downloaded separately, people would have opted for something else.
