Maybe MSN's API Isn't "Way Better"

When Microsoft's Bill Gates declared that MSN's search API was "way better" than Google's (and apparently Yahoo's), I did kind of think, "really?" I mean, the API had only been out for about a day. But I don't know APIs, so maybe it was super-powerful. Then again, maybe it's not. Aaron at SEO Book writes of a friend upset that the API lacks the Java and PHP support that both Google and Yahoo offer. Discussion on the Microsoft Developer Forums here.
