Google Desktop 2.0 Beta

So, there's a new revision of Google Desktop, now version 2.0 Beta.

They have this sidebar thing which is kind of interesting. I guess it could be compared to Konfabulator (recently purchased by Yahoo) or Dashboard on the Mac -- although not as pretty as either of them. It is extensible by 3rd parties with a plug-in system. Even though it's not as pretty, I think it is much cleaner and I'm sure it uses a lot fewer resources.

Anyway, if you're already using Google Desktop, and maybe especially if you are using Outlook e-mail, you should give it an upgrade and check it out. For Windows XP and 2000 SP3+ users only.

There is also an Enterprise addition, also free, but premium support can be purchased.
