Wouldn't all good businesses be focused on this? I would assume that google is in it for the money too? could be wrong, but I think the addition of other major serious competition would cause the search results to become more relevant?
All I can think is that M$ will be too focused on $$$

When you don't focus on the money, and just focus on making something great, then good things (like money) come to you. Or at least the potential for it to come to you is greater.
That is exactly how Google worked. It's how tons of other companies worked.
When you focus all your energy on figuring out how you will make money, you will inevitably make bad decisions. But when your focus is on doing great stuff, great stuff will happen.
Once you get to that point, the skies the limit with how much money you can make. (Until you go public and screw it all up by focusing on money!)

One thing they always focus on is how to get users to switch to their product. Normally they use a combination of marketshare/user base (ie install the program by default on every machine) and some very aggressive marketing combined with features that make people want to give them a chance.
They also really, really support developers. Not because they are nice, but because a well supported developer makes new products, supports MS to their users, and come up with lots of creative ideas.
I'd expect to see a "search engine" that easily connects to a website or piece of software. You'd have a simple "google-style" interface, but they would hype the ability to use it to create an MSN like portal for your site. I'd also expect to see a lot of API's, search bars, etc.
In short, offer lots of really cool goodies for webmasters and software programmers. Once you fill the room with toys, the children will come...
Oh, and offer good results (obviously)

With MSN though, in order to compete, Gates will have to do at least as well as google in order to be a contender. Gates seems to be too bent on being the best to allow crap results dominate the SERPS like google is at the moment. He is determined to "one up" google and I bet with his funding, he will find a way to do it and make money doing it.

Windows didn't do well in 1985, but by the 3rd try (ver 3.11) it was starting to become a player.
Same with NT, SQL-Server, Visual Basic, ...
MSN Search Version 3 is when they'll start to dominate.
