Just a quick additional note... This search tool is very easy to use! I installed it in about 5 minutes. Then ran the index crawler (another 10 minutes). Customized my search results page... (5 minutes). Very cool!

thanks for the link.
The only downside I see so far is the Hardware Requirements.
1GB of RAM
80GB of Disk Space
2 Processors at 3 GHz
2GB of RAM
250GB Mirrored Hard Drives
The Mini, which seems to the the market they are going after, is much less and works just fine.
Seems to be a good move for IBM/Yahoo.

Support costs is also a downside. $2000/year per server. I think that cost is per server. Not a great deal for the corporate world.

Now I just need to find the time to get the best from it.

I am curious to know what else you expect for a FREE product? Half a million pages for zero. google mini costs 9000 for 300,000 pages and its annual suppoort costs 995.

Only point on the support cost was that it is not that great of an advantage over the G appliance, due to the higher support cost.

So far, very impressed with the results it delivers on my test PC.
Now, if they only enabled console / silent installations, I might just be able to try it on a production server.
The $2-3K for the enterprise edition seems like a small fee when you take into account how many customers are lost on small / medium ecommerce stores because of bad or inadequate search functions.
