Acquia Search versus Drupal search

It's been several days since we launched Acquia Search commercially. After reviewing the press, articles, comments, and tweets, I wanted to address the question of why we seem to care so much about search and why we can't simply improve Drupal's built-in search module. These questions came up during the beta test period as well, and have even resonated with the WordPress community on Matt Mullenweg's blog. I feel they are important questions to address.
