More on that Google comment

I talked with Christopher Payne, the corporate vice president for MSN Search, yesterday for the story on Windows Live Search, the search engine being tested at Microsoft on its Live.com site.

I asked him about last week’s comments from Neil Holloway, a Microsoft Europe exec, who said Microsoft would be better than Google in six months.

“I was probably more surprised by Neil’s comments than you were,” Payne said. “We want to gain market share. I don’t think that it is wise or appropriate to put a time frame on it.”
