Microsoft Employees Tweet Bing 2.0 Excitement

ZDNet reports that Microsoft employees currently in Seattle for the company's annual meeting are all tweeting about Bing 2.0, which is coming 'this month.' One staffer in attendance even went as far as to say we'll see the next version of Bing next week.

“BING 2.0 terrific !! watch out guys ! bing + silverlight in maps = amazing !! goodbye google” read one tweet.

Another employee tweeted Microsoft's plans to add new features to maps: “Bing 2.0, out this month, has some exciting new features. Imagine seeing maps plus pics from the neighborhood of a restaurant to try. “

Despite its oh so lame jingle and the fact that Microsoft insists on calling it a "decision making engine," a lot of people actually quite like Bing. While there's not a whole lot to go on aside from a ballpark for the launch, those of you who've made the change from Google to Bing can look forward to Silverlight in maps as well among other things.

How many of you are regular Bing users? Let us know in the comments below.
