It is a much better tool than Google Desktop. GD doesn't have find-as-you-type, and it doesn't allow searching for part of a word. MSN Desktop Search has a real interface instead of just displaying results as a webpage.

It may not be as good as Spotlight for the Mac, but it was released sooner (and it's free)

By the way: Congratulations Philipp for getting your Slashdot story approved – it was quite a surprise to see a familiar name there. And a PR9-Link can't hurt either ;-).

For those of you who missed it:

Yes Andreas, I'm always happy when they approve a story of mine! I have a rate of around 1 to 7 or so (for every 7 stories I submit, 1 gets chosen).

David, I agree. The interface of the MSN search is just much better. It IS an interface (allowing me to copy/delete the files in the results) instead of just a page listing the results.
