My opinion only, you understand...

For 'business users' read: newbies.

If anything, business users are more likely to use Yahoo or MSN - one being
the top brand and the other being the one most likely to have come with the
browser. AltaVista, AskJeeves and Lycos have made some inroads locally (can
you guess why?), but experimentation rarely goes beyond this.

OK, I've said my piece - bring on the flames!
