Google Desktop for the MAC: What files are really installed?

To all my fellow MAC user buddies out there, if you haven't heard Google has released the first version of their Google Desktop software for the MAC. I installed it last night and it has a pretty slick interface and is supposed to be a replacement (or competitor) for Apple's own Spotlight (which I admit to using less and less of since I started using Quicksilver). I haven't gotten a chance to play around with it since installing it last night but I always wonder when installing software that uses a proprietary installer, "what files are actually being installed on my system and how much space is this going to take?"

 Well fortunately, someone else asked the same questions and went very in depth in finding out precisely what Google is installing on your machines and where. It's pretty suprising, for there are some files that might cause some concern. Give the article a read to find out all the info.
