New Delhi: Bill Gates, co-founder of
Microsoft Corporation, which recently launched its own search
platform today described its competition with Google as "fun
competition".

Software giant Microsoft recently launched its own search
engine --Bing-- to take on the rival Google but at the same
time he complimented them saying "Google has done a great
work."

Microsoft has been trying to make its presence felt on
the search space and take on Google, the leader in the space.

When asked about the future of search, Gates said on a
humorous note "The future of search is Bing...."

Talking at a Nasscom event, Gates said "In next 1-3 years
search should be dramatically better. Microsoft has hired some
great people to do innovative work to make it more
competitive.

"When you are a distant two, you have to try harder. Who
knows we can make it better and faster than anybody else."
