Google Search for your personal files

It's here: google has released Google Desktop. Technology Review observes:
The latest gambit from the folks at Google: proving that their software can find documents on your Windows computer faster than Windows itself can. The new Google Desktop, a free downloadable program, applies Google’s indexing technology to your hard drive, drastically speeding up keyword searches of files such as Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents, Outlook e-mail messages, AOL Instant Messenger conversations, and Web pages you’ve viewed.

Do you trust Google enough to install this app? That's a burning issue. I have installed Google Desktop to see what it can offer. Details after I've used it enought to have an opinion.
