Bing Smart Search updated to understand natural language

Smart Search on Windows 8.1 is getting a nice update this week that tailors to natural language. Usually when you make a search in Windows, you need to type in exactly what you're looking for, but now phrases like "how do I install a printer?" or "get more Windows apps" will yield helpful, tailored results. The Smart Search improvement will also include predictions based on common misspellings. As you might expect, all of these improvements are made thanks to the Bing search engine.

The update to Windows 8 Smart Search should start rolling out this week. These are some solid additions and should make the lives of newer users a lot easier. How have you guys found Smart Search? Are you happy to see these tweaks, or are there any specific changes you've been holding out for?
