Showdown: Windows Search vs Google Desktop

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/14/2006 01:36:00 AM
I was searching for notepad.exe on my computer because like most people I couldn't find its path, so I typed it into Windows search. Guess how long it took to find it using Windows Search (All Programs => Search) vs Google Desktop (Nasdaq GOOG)?

Here are the results:

Windows Search : 10 seconds

Google Desktop : .83 seconds

I was surprised it took ten times longer using Windows to find an application on Windows. Why does it take a tenth of the time to search using Google Desktop than Windows Search - a native app. Where are you Bill Gates? Where are the usability engineers at Microsoft (Nasdaq MSFT)?
