Honestly, I found it rather useless, seemed to me like a proof of concept more than a real useful search engine.
The Tree View was the most ridiculous thing, it just seemed like a flash UI for live search, nothing more.

First I had to install Silverlight, and I don't see how this is any better from Flash,
or why would anyone go to the trouble of making the users install a Flash like technology when flash is already installed on
almost every browser, its easier to find flash developers, and the technology is proven to bring forward great innovation along (youtube).

Then I go and read a tutorial of Silverlight... and its nothing but a cheap copy of Adobe Flex.

I guess Microsoft continues to stick to their strategy of copying other companies, it's worked so far for them.
