Windows Live Search add-on borrows GDS feature

Just when I am reaching a point where it becomes impossible to track the hundred services under the Windows Live umbrella, Microsoft plans to confuse me even more. They are release a new Desktop Search add-on that has the same name as one other existing search products.

Most of us are aware that Microsoft internet search service is known as Windows Live Search. But now, Microsoft is releasing another add-on product that has the same name "Windows Live Search"

The new Windows Live Search addon will be integrated with Windows Desktop Search tool and allow simultaneously searching of your computer hard-drive, network computers and the internet from one place.

Very much like Google Desktop search is doing already. Corporate network search will be available only to those who use Microsoft's SharePoint server software.

Microsoft, can we have a different less confusing name please.
