**OS/2 features**
Now OS/2 have a desktop search system integrated with WorkPlace Shell: open the search folder, enter the text and click 'Search'; the folder will be populated with shadows of the found objects! Then change view to details view, you will get more informations about the search results.
Also OS/2 Extended attributes can be parsed and stored in database, so you can search also for keywords in EAs!
