    i've tried it, and while i really like it, it uses too much memory for me. i only have 512mb right now and it's just not enough to use Google Desktop, listen to Winamp, and surf the web with Firefox, while running Norton Internet Security.

    if i ever get more memory or if it ever uses less, i'll be on the wagon.

    Yeah thats what i noticed. You don't even have to be running it and Google will take about about 25mb of ur memory.. It really is very bad. And I didn't even find it the slighest bit helpful. I would stay steer clear of this if I was you.

    Yeah but changing it from a beta to final won't make it any more useful to me. It will still do things that I don't think are neccessary. However, I do hope that the memory problem will be sorted out for people that will use this.

    I love it but I would never install it on my own PC. If you install it on other peoples PCs you can use it to track all their emails and online chats - it's awesome.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
