Google Desktop Only Receives 640,000 Downloads
John Battelle reports on a Majestic study that shows Google Desktop Search having been downloaded only 640,000 times, small numbers when you compare it to WinZip, which receives 450,000 downloads a week. Is Google looking at these numbers and working ot improve the product? I hope so.

But WinZip is on the scene for many years... I don't think you can compare the two products at all, and I think Google Desktop didn't do bad.
They better be improving it! I monitor and participate in the discussion board and people are begging for Firefox and Thunderbird support (as far as indexing goes). Plus more flexability in file types, partial filename search, index MP3 tags, ability to reindex with out having to do all the reg hacks, and a few others I can't think of at the moment.
