I like Google Desktop (use the linux version), but there's one thing which
is VERY annoying to me, and pretty much a show-stopper for searching for my
Mathematica .m files (at least on linux): It ignores hidden ("dot") files.
Google knows of this, and ignores it (or has decided it's not worth
changing for privacy reasons or something like that, but I haven't read a
good explanation). This isn't a huge issue for many things, but my main
Mathematica package files are in a /home/username/.Mathematica directory,
which I am loath to change. Therefore, Google Desktop never sees them.
Instead, I have to use Recoll and/or some of the newer strigi tools (for
On Windows, I have had a few issues with Copernic losing its indexes, or
locking up, but otherwise it's quite nice, and finds .m files. I haven't used
Google Desktop on Windows, though.
Hopefully something in there might be useful to you!
