Google.

So anyways, i had a specific question reguarding google, i'm sure it'll evolve with googles many betas and projects but for now. What are your opinions on google desktop? I just had to reinstall windows on my computer and i decided i'd give google desktop a shot since i already use google everything else. I'm not a big fan though, some of the tools are useful but really the clutter on my desktop just drives me nuts even though i can hotkey them away the toolbar at the top still drives me nuts. Thoughts?

I agree. It's kind of cool, can be useful but it clutters the desktop and slows the performance of the computer down a little bit. I uninstalled it after playing around with it for a few days.

Haven't tried it yet.
To tell you the truth, I don't need it. Currently I'm using Vista and I'm more than happy with the Vista search capability's.

well i set my duel screen back up, installed UltraMon an threw the google desktop on the secondary monitor. I have all the tools except email and pictures disabled till i hotkey them up. It seems fairly useful dont know how long i'll keep it but i do like the random picture display on my desktop, i'm half a world away from my wife so i just have random pictures of her and me and all that shiz for the folder, it's kinda nice.
