Google Desktop Search (continued)

I’ve posted about Google’s Desktop Search a number of times.  In my most recent post, I listed all the issues I’ve got with this service and stated that I’d try Microsoft’s desktop search product when it comes out in December.

Well, I’ve slowly but surely begun to rely more and more on Google Desktop Search.  In the past couple days, I couldn’t have done everything I needed to get done without it.

The biggest issue, beyond the initial indexing experience which was horrible, and the ongoing indexing and battery life issues which are real, was teaching myself to use it instead of the search that’s built into Outlook.

That’s slowly happening and as it does, I am learning to like and use it a lot more.

And that’s making it less likely that I’ll switch to Microsoft’s desktop search when it comes out next month.
