I am overly impressed with the gigantic list of syntax options one has in Windows Search. Not only is it a huge list, but many of them work as expected.

I just migrated to a new work laptop, and subsequently from Windows XP to Windows 7. I was absolutely tied to Google Desktop in XP, but now I’m wondering if Microsoft just won me over and I don’t need to download and install GD. (Surprising, because this may be the first time Microsoft has won me over on anything since Windows 2000. I may have to install GD for the recent e-mail gadget that it provides, but I may not turn on indexing. I’m beside myself.
