Is the new MSN search biased to IIS?

Ivor Hewitt writes "Is the new MSN beta search biased towards IIS based servers?

That was the question I asked myself after playing with it for a few minutes. It had all started innocently enough... I'd typed my name into Google to see how high my page ranked in the results. Rather pleased that I'd appeared in the first few results I tried the same on the new MSN beta search. Paging through the results there was no sign on the same page until about rank 67.
I clicked on a few of the sites in the first few results and for some reason the fact that a couple where IIS based caught my eye. I compared with the first page of Google's results and didn't find a single IIS based server.
Odd. Pure coincidence perhaps. But how to check."
