Lookeen as Docfetcher Alternative

DocFetcher is an open source desktop search program. It’s cross-platform compatible, be it a Windows, Linux or Mac OS operating systems. The disadvantage, however, lies in the limited functionality. It has neither the opportunity to index networks, nor integrate external sources. For the individual user DocFetcher may be sufficient, but for multiple users or companies, DocFetcher isn’t suitable.
