I know a few people who run desktop searches and they highly recommend them, MSN and Google are a couple of the most popular desktop-search tools.
To me, these just make users extremely lazy. I’ve read that some people dont even know where they are saving files to, they just rely on their desktop-search to find them after downloading. Are people so lazy that they can’t use Windows-Explorer anymore? Explorer does a fine job when I search for files. Same with most email clients, I use the ‘advanced find’ option in Outlook to search not only in the email subject but the body as well.
Anyone else? ( i will only accept one ‘use linux’ comment)
