Run Windows Desktop Search
on Mac, Linux & Chrome OS

Windows Desktop Search is the windows analog of SpotLight (Mac), and strigi (Linux/KDE). It is a database with indexed information about your files, and provides near-instant search results. The importance of having Windows Desktop Search under CrossOver is (besides the fact that the very purpose of CrossOver/Wine is to run windows apps) to provide this facility to Microsoft Office. Outlook integrates with Windows Desktop Search, and you can do near-instantaneous email searches inside Outlook 2007 with it. It has a significant impact on finding information when you have gobs of email and must mine information from it. Thus, it should be put on the radar, because it is a valuable complement for Microsoft Office users (and it is a free download).
