Works with OpenOffice, fast, free, handles documents in-program so you can see the search words in context, allows you to jump quickly from one instance to the next of a word in a document
Perfect for my needs
My experience is different from that of other users. I only need this software to search text documents -many of which are OpenOffice docs- for specific terms -we're talking about 2.5 GBs worth of data. The initial scan took under an hour, which was great. The searches are flexible and instant, and the ability to see the search terms in a preview of the document breaks the deal for me.
After dealing with the bloated and not-really-like-Google-at-all Google Desktop, finding Copernicus was a relief.
