Desktop Search, Bah Humbug.

With desktop search programs recentley released by Google, MSN, and Copernic, I was wondering if it's all necessary. Windows obviously has built in "Files and Folders" search and its hyped "Indexing Service", but:

With Indexing Service turned off, searching for a file on a Windows PC is glacially slow. And, with Indexing Service turned on, searching for a file is still glacially slow.

The Inquirer explains that you need to use a special method to actually get any benefits. And it does work, incredibly fast.
