Google's Corporate Desktop Search tool

Google launched a destop search tool for corporates called as Google Desktop Search for Enterprise.
Google Desktop Search for Enterprise helps you easily manage the ever-growing mountain of information located on your computers and includes key standards-based administrator features that provide enhanced security, centralised configuration and easy company-wide deployment.

Boost your productivity with Google Desktop Search:
  • Find your email, files, media, web history and chats instantly
  • View web pages you've seen, even when you're not online
  • Search directly from your desktop with the Deskbar
  • View search results from your desktop, intranet and Google.com
Why the new enterprise features are a big deal for IT administrators:
  • Centrally control user features and preferences
  • Encrypt all user data and search index files
  • Easily deploy using the included installation package
  • Test new versions before distributing

I really miss a Desktop search tool for Linux users. There are similar tools, but a product from Google really has its own value.
