    Well there is no more a big deal since its in a optional update unless you are willing to install it. ;)

    Not really.

    "Google decided late last year that their Google Desktop application was no longer relevant, and promptly killed it. Google Desktop was similar to the Bing Desktop, with the addition of local file search"

    I think this is for the unsuspecting Windows user (and others), who install all optional updates.

    It'll change your IE settings to Bing/MSN pages, as well as change your Desktop wallpaper. You can have the Bing Search in the centre on the screen, or at the top.

    This reminded me of Launchy.

    DDG, FTW. Getting used to the bang syntax now. Bing Desktop is just another needless advert for the Bing Search Engine.
