i think its very usefull. i use google desktop on my comp n i find it really easy to launch files n even programs.. now i rarely go to my computer n browse thro da files cos all i hav to do is press ctrl twice n type da first few letters of da file or prog that i want n select from the list… its really that simple not to mention the various gadgets that can be used with da sidebar.. (u can put jokes. news, weather n various other useful stuff)..

As for the privacy concerns, i kno that it is a risk but you can choose wat files to be included for indexin so basically u get to choose wat files u want to b able to search for…. but then there is allways da chance of google usin that private data to help them provie ‘better’ search results…
