Matt Hester wrote an article for TechNet Magazine on Windows Desktop Search (WDS). The article is in the publication pipeline so it’ll be out in the next few months. In the meantime, Matt used Camtasia Studio to produce a screencast on the product technologies. This is an excellant preview of the article (which I’ve already reviewed). Matt did a great job of recording the demos (too good) and you’ll see they stream nicely off our media server.
See his post at http://blogs.technet.com/matthewms/archive/2006/05/17/428884.aspx for more information, references and the link to the screencast.
