When Google Desktop first came out, I loved it.
It gave quick search results searching across multiple categories on my machine, and it was fast.
But the more I used it, the more I noticed things I didn’t like. Links to files that didn’t exist. Missing search results. Incomplete results.
So even though I had a bad experience when I first tried Windows Desktop Search when it was in beta, I decided to try it again.
There is no quesiton, this is a clear cut total win for Microsoft.
Windows Desktop is fast, gives much more complete results (espically from my email), and has a much nicer user interface when compared with Google Desktop.
I have to say, I am suprised, but happy that it works as well as it does.
