Once, Windows search was an absurdity. Sometimes, however, humilitation begets resolve and resolve begets greatness. So it is with Vista’s search engine. Think of something to do, anything all. You might run a command, open a document or just find a written word. As long as your thought as a name that a computer could know, all you need to do is press Windows and start typing. Soon you will hit Enter, and your will is done.
It is like the command line, except it finds anything, not ust commands. Search is not just a sleek UI, it is also damned fast. Filenames are indexed, and so is the text of likely documents. I typed in “hell”; without pausing, Vista offered me two mysteriously unfiendish C file; neither was named “hello”, but that’s what they both said.
Vista’s search is very, very good.
