I hadn't realised until now that there was anything other than Google Desktop Search and MSN's one, but apparently there are 5 out there for you to choose from and all but one of them don't appear to be that hot.

Found a comparison of desktop search on MSN's Slate magazine (via Slashdot) but I really had to read it twice. For starters it says nice things about Google and secondly, it doesn't put MSN as the top one!

Does Bill Gates not read that site??

The thing is that, whenever new idea/application is introduced, Microsoft is never the front runner, runner's up at best. So is it meaningful to say that Microsoft is currently not the front runner in desktop search tool race?
