In a 49-page document filed April 18 with the U.S. Justice Department and state attorneys general, Google alleged that the latest version of Microsoft's Windows operating system impairs the performance of 'desktop search' programs that find data stored on a computer's hard drive. Besides bogging down competing programs, Google alleged Microsoft had made it too complicated to turn off the desktop search feature built into Vista.

It forces me to open a new browser window for results, which may be slow, and then it just shows a heap of files without any filtering or whatnot. Vista integrated search is WAY better (i think it's even better than Spotlight, because Start-search resuls works as a regular system files - you can drag-n-drop them right from there, which Spotlight cannot.
