I would argue these points:
1) We do database here, not front ends. This is a SQL forum.
2) We work in Microsoft. We get paid to do what we do if it's heavy lifting. Free software and codework is usually done by the Linux community.
3) The level of integration to get that search structure has been built for a number of years by some of the top minds in the business. Google that is. I'm not saying they CAN'T be imitated. I believe it's out of scope for one or two coders.
Yeah, Google *owns* text retrieval. doens;t mean no one else can work in the field too.
Paid is fine. My point is perhaps a few SQL Server people who would use such a product might group together to get it done. Perhaps if a group of us asked MS they would work on it for the next release.
Finally, your point about SQL is valid. The product I'm thinking about would be geared specifically to SQL Server--a set of tools to make development of SQL search solutions better and easier. Since SQL developers are the one who have to create such solutions now, it seems reaosnable to put this in in SQL forum.
