No.

But Microsoft used to be powered by Y! til Bill decided to build his own.

Another poke in the eye for Bill!

That's the cut-throat world of big business for you I suppose
and I expect that right now Microsoft and Yahoo and others are busy burning the midnight oil to come up with a competitor to Google's excellent new desk top search engine.
( I believe that Longhorn will have a similar idea built in but who knows when that will arrive?)

If any one hasn't tried this free software, and has spend time searching for doucuments by content in Windows Explorer, then you are in for a nice surprise.
I have test driven it on my 110 gig disk (109 gigs of data!) with a variety of search strings and it returns a listing immediately including mail items from my remote mail server via an STD line.

You can find it with a google search (or Yahoo!) on ........ google desktop
