Allison Linn at the AP reports that Microsoft will start integrating desktop and intranet search results with their internet web search.
From the initial reports, the new Microsoft product sounds very similar to Google Desktop Search, which nicely integrates search results from your desktop with all of your web searches.
Longer term, this likely is the beginning of a Microsoft strategy to win the search war by leveraging their control of the desktop. For more on that, see my earlier post, "Using the desktop to improve search".
