Feedback from reddit [1]:

"Spotlight - It does more than just find files. It indexes everything on your hard drive including file names, contents, application names, settings, meta data, labels etc. It's always there no matter what application I'm in (though many apps have their own Spotlight bar too) and it's quick. I can't emphasize enough how much Spotlight features in my workflow. If I want to find an email I sent where I know I mentioned a phrase, I just Spotlight the words and the email comes up in the Spotlight menu almost instantly. If I want to configure my VPN settings, I just type "VPN" into Spotlight and it takes me to the correct configuration panel."
