Great update. No visual changes noted from before, but a faster response in searches was seen.

Very interesting. It places a search bar on your start menu at the very bottom left which will search your computer for programs, files, history, favorites, and will also search the internet using your default search engine. I'm not sure I like the placement (it will take some getting used to), but it works very well.

Looks like some good improvements for the enterprise, but nothing the average Joe needs to worry about.

The P2P-like feature might be opening a big can of worms support and security-wise.

Morsel - Then don't use it. Buy a Mac or use Linux. You have choices. You don't need to leave a hate review without any substance on the product reviewed here.
I use the search service in Vista a lot... and this newer search version for vista ( update if you will ) is a whole lot faster and more accurate.

Is this a joke or what. Vista already has Windows Search built-in. So this version 4 is an update I guess? I hate Vista. I hate Microsoft.

So you rate it low because you can't bother to read the release notes on what it does?

It improves the speed and accuracy windows search in all versions of the tool including Vista

How does this differ from what is native to Vista?
