As for Andy's question of whether or not I believe him, the answer is still no. I didn't doubt that Google might release this. I doubted that it was going to be released later because Mac users "won't tolerate anything crappy".
I guess that wasn't clear earlier.
Now, I personally can't wait to get my hands on a Mac version of GDS. If it can properly index and search mbox files, that will kick much ass. I've got a ton of e-mail I'd love to be able to search. And it's not like we've got a Yahoo Desktop Search product available for the Mac. Or Windows. Or, well... anything.
By all accounts, Google has done a good job with the first version of GDS on Windows. If the Mac one is similar, I'll probably find myself using it on a regular basis.
