Spotlight is terrible for sure. The worst part is that you can't turn it off! At least the indexing in OS 9 had a "stop indexing" prompt, even though that was annoying every time it popped up. Searching is something that I never really do, and I hate to think of wasting cycles or space maintaining indexes of all my files. If it is a 'dummy' feature, it should be on by default as it is ... however for us 'non-dummies' that can actually maintain an organized disk, we should be able to turn it off! (and i am not talking about some unsupported hack to turn it off either! just a toggle in the system preferences that says "spotlight: off/on")
