What? No Google on Vista? Google Strikes Back on IE 7!

As some of you may know, Bill Gates unveiled Windows Vista at the CES Keynote address early this year in Las Vegas. There, attendees and users that followed via webcast (thanks Gary!) and other news stories all around. What Bill didn't talk much was about Google on Vista, so here is a peak.

I couldn't help keeping this one to myself. A friend of mine just forwarded to me these images from the Beta version of the new Windows Vista and how it recommends search engines, calling it "Windows Search Guide" (click image to view a full snapshot):

Funny how it says way down at the bottom of that page, "Done, but with errors on page."

Anyway... Google strickes back on IE 7!

This should be fun :-)

Postscript: Added link to page "Windows Search Guide", which currently shows no mention of Google.

Update: Added a forum thread at our forums, named it Tit for Tat Between Google and Microsoft based on Battelle's ping. Should be a fun conversation. Thanks Nacho for bringing this to light.
