Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express


The other day I downloaded and installed MSS 2008 on one of our Windows 2003 Server x64 development servers.

I immediately picked a couple of file shares and a web site as sample content sources for the server to crawl, it only took a few minutes to setup and when it was finished crawling my content I was able to search it easily.

The search interface and results window allows the user to subscribe to updates searches via E-mail or RSS alerts.  The search experience can be customized using Visual Studio or SharePoint Designer.

I recommend you give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
