I agree. Until someone runs subjects on a bunch of use scenarios, it's hard to say which is better, and I happen to prefer Bing. Conjecturally speaking, one-pixel outlines come at a cost -- if you don't need them, as when the map colors are low-contrast, you can actually have somewhat bigger text.

My hypothesis is that people with poor eyesight or cheap monitors might have problems with Bing. The low contrast is very beautiful, especially if you have a great screen, but maybe not optimal in all situations. I would love to see that tested.
