Search frenzy

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why is the whole desktop search battle happening? Why are MSN Desktop Search and Google Desktop Search separate programs you have to download and install? What do they do that Mac OS's Find window and Sherlock, and Microsoft's own Find Files and Folders utility, don't do?

And if all this is so cool, why hasn't it been built into operating systems instead? Have the built-in tools really been so broken all these years, and if so, why were they allowed to stay that way?
