Google Desktop for Mac not certain

According to Tim O’Reilly, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, Google CEO Eric Schmidt was not as clear as media reports said he was on bringing a version of Google Desktop to Mac OS X. “I’m the one who asked [Schmidt] the question at his talk about whether we’d expect a Mac version of Google desktop, and I have to say I didn’t read his response at all the way the Reuters reporter did,” O’Reilly writes. “He was fairly equivocal, saying that it was a hard problem, requiring a whole separate project, not just a port, because of the differences in the operating systems. He made no announcement of actual plans to deliver the product, or even that Google was actively working on it.”
