UPDATE: Chris Kilbourn has posted another good case study on TechNet search.
I'm hearing from the folks on the floor at TechEd that our 3.0 release of search is getting raves. I can't wait to show it off next week to IT folks. Today, co-worker Jeff Day blogged a great story as a case-in-point where a skeptic was turned into a believer.
A few searches to try:
Developers, go to http://search.msdn.microsoft.com and start typing any of these to see our new autocomplete and refinements in action:
IT professionals, go to http://search.technet.microsoft.com and try these (the autocomplete list and refinements are tuned for each site).
If you want to stay up to date on what's planned, see the search team's blog.
Note about autocomplete: it's not yet working on the bulk of the MSDN and TechNet sites, so while autocomplete is there when you're in the library today, it's not our new and improved one, which is limited to the search application itself and the new forums and social bookmarking apps. It will get updated in the library soon.
