When Google launched their “Desktop Search” software there was a fair bit of hype surrounding it. One thing it reminded me of was the old DOS program from the 1980s called Magellan, written by Lotus. It seemed to get some good reviews back in those days, mostly due to its ability to search for information inside of files that are in oddball formats. There was never a Windows version of Magellan, so a bit of a wasted opportunity there, I think.
