Seems to do exactly what Tiger does. Why not just buy Tiger? YTes, it's a bit more expensive, but you get so much more.

If you are referring to Spotlight then this isn't entirely an accurate statement. Firstly, Spotlight doesn't index many folders that might be of interest (especially to developers - like framework header files or example code). Librarian can index any folder you want. Secondly Spotlight is slow slow slow.. even on my dual G5. It searches everywhere looking for matches. Most of the time you know approximately what context your want to search.. in my Documents folder, in my home folder, in the developer docs, etc. With Librarian you can create Search Groups that only search specific locations. As a developer this is fabulous. I have groups for 'example code' that includes cocoa example code as well as source I've downloaded from the net. I also have search groups for my Documents and Library folders. Once Librarian has indexed your information the search is nearly instantaneous. Much better than waiting for spotlight to return a bunch of results from everything it has indexed.

While I am not enamored of Spotlight (for reasons too numerous and somewhat esoteric to explain here), to say that it is slow seems very unfair.

On my 1.5GHz PowerBook (a few months old) with 1.5GB RAM , it is *very* fast indeed.


Perhaps it depends on how much stuff you have indexed.. On my dual G5 I probably have upwards of 400GB of files (some of it video), years of mail, etc. Doing a search in Spotlight takes probably a minute before it finishes up and stops shifting the results around. I do get the very first results very quickly but it still takes a long time before it finishes up.

Couldn't even index a folder with containing 200 pdf's. And the price....
