Does Google Mini give a direction for Google Desktop Search?

Google Mini is the latest version of the Google Search Applicance, aimed at small business with up to 50,000 documents on their intranet webservers.

The appliance supports searching in 220 file formats, which is around the same number claimed by Yahoo for their desktop search. This is unsurprising - I'm sure that both these products are using the Outside In technology from Stellent.

Google Desktop Search has been criticised for its poor (and currently unexpandable) support for file formats - perhaps we will see it expanding its range of supported formats via this same software library.
