Linux users will be happy to note Google launched last night a version of its Desktop software just for them. It was developed primarily at their Beijing location, according to the Google Desktop blog.
Google Desktop for Linux, which joins versions for Windows and Mac, will offer many of the same features as found in an early edition of the Windows version. It also includes the useful Quick Search Box, which can be called up by hitting Ctrl twice on your keyboard.
As Google puts it the Linux version was developed as an easier way to find something then “‘find /home/username -name ‘*.pdf’ and ‘pdftotext pdf_file_name.pdf output.txt…'” Enough said.
