Microsoft Won't Bundle Desktop Search with Windows

Microsoft Won't Bundle Desktop Search with Windows: "Microsoft Corp. has no immediate plans to integrate desktop search into its operating system, a company executive said at a conference here this weekend.
Speaking on a panel on search technology at the Harvard Business School's Cyberposium, Mark Kroese, general manager of information services and merchant platform product marketing for MSN, said the federal antitrust battle Microsoft waged with the government has made the company think twice about what technologies it can add to the operating system."

Actually, it already does (integrate desktop search), on Windows XP; it's just not very effective.
