Thats single digit impact as per microsoft's claim, That Single digit may be 9% :) under test environment. Actual figures may vary. :)

another thing, does the desktop search work with bitlocker, most desktop search programs cant index encrypted files, with bitlocker encrypting everything does windows vista desktop search still work?

Well the OS search function should function fine as when you use bitlocker it encrypts the the whole OS and not selected area's. Infact everything on the OS will function correctly.

The link and quoted section below explain this :)

Quote "How it works: BitLocker doesn't just encrypt the user's files, it encrypts the entire operating system partition, including Windows files, all your software applications as well as all the users' data stored on the drive."

"most desktop search programs cant index encrypted files" - I would definatly check this out cause logically thinking if you encrypt the OS partition and THEN install a 3rd party desktop search tool it should work fine.

Desktop Search should work the usual way. Shell just sees disk/disk contents transparently.
