From a recently received e-mail:
"Fast Search & Transfer (FAST) is pleased to announce today that Dell Computer Corporation (Nasdaq:DELL) has selected FAST Data Search to power the search at Dell.com..."

"Due to the nature of the contract, neither FAST nor Dell is available to provide further comment on the deal at this time."

Fantastic news for anyone who is forced to use the Dell site. I was looking for some info on a laptop there and found it was easier to use external google search than the internal dell site search.

The current Dell site is a major joke if you are looking for anything.

BTW...does anyone know where I can get a set of drivers for the inspiron 3800?

I believe that FAST runs on Dell hardware, so not a surprise.

Dell is also an equity investor in FAST.
