Microsoft has yet to comment publicly on the jab, but the comment is getting plenty of reaction from everyone else, positive and negative.

For the record, Microsoft Bing and related services have become a respectable portion of Microsoft’s business, generating more than $6.8 billion in search advertising revenue for the company in its latest fiscal year, or about 6 percent of Microsoft’s overall revenue of $110 billion, although Google continues to dominate the search market.
