its a fricken OS feature
what next, someone demanding that the file system in vista be made interchangable so that you can use something else?
the fact is that google want to be able to track and advertise to you at every opertunity, the only reason they could possibly need further integration, is to really snoop on you as far as im concerned.
i mean as long as they can traverse the file structure thats enough access for a sodding file search.
i mean what next, will they want a gdir command incase some one fires up command prompt and types "dir <lostfile name>*.* /s"
thing is, u know M$ will be getting thousands of support calls from plebs, not understanding that the google search is nothing to do with ms, but cus its so well integrated it will appear to be part of m$'s remit for support, i dont see what good it can do other than cause a great deal of confusion. i mean if numpty bush talks about 'the google' god help the rest of the uneducated american masses (no offence at the 5% of the american population or so that manage free thought)
besides who needs a desktop search to index all your stuff, is it really to much hassle to just create a logical folder structure?
e.g. my docs/word/[project, topic, subject name]/<file name>
obviously it is, and why on earth youwould want the install files, samples and help files included in the index i dont know
basically to my mind this is a non problem, as better integration of a shit product, just makes a well integrated shit product.
