Don't Give Up Vista Search for Google

by Preston Gralla

Microsoft has agreed to make changes to Vista so that it's easy to use other search tools instead of Vista's built-in search. The change will take effect with SP-1 for Vista, the beta of which is due later this year. But just because you'll be able to change your search tool doesn't mean you should. Vista's built-in search easily beats Google's desktop search.

"make it easier to search by date": What fantasy version of Vista are you using? I can't find ANYWHERE to say "show me all files modified in the last day, regardless of name or contents." Get rid of this dumb search bar and give me back a search WINDOW!
