MSN Desktop Search

So the big news Scoble talked about is MSN's new toolbar. But not just the new toolbar. It's the new toolbar with desktop search included.

I downloaded it, ran the installer, and my reaction? It doesn't install on Windows 2003. So I can't tell you anything about it. It says I need to "upgrade" my windows version to Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Doesn't sound like an upgrade to me.

So my initial reaction isn't good. Most software seems to work under Windows 2003 even if it's designed for Windows XP. I wonder if there's a good reason why it won't work on Windows 2003.

Incidentally, Media Player 10 doesn't install on Windows 2003 either.
