Read it from the blog of Steve Coast, who have joined Microsoft's Bing
Maps division: http://blog.stevecoast.com/im-working-at-microsoft-and-were-donating-ima
Relevant quote: "Microsoft is donating access to it's global
orthorectified aerial imagery to help OpenStreetMappers make the map
even better than it already is."
Microsoft has vastly more and newer satellite imagery than Yahoo! has.
This will certainly drastically increase the data in OSMPH.
