Update : Scary ? [was Google Desktop Search's EULA ...]

Given here.

Does anyone exactly know what the "non-commercial use only" subscribes to ? Would using it on my work desktop classify as commercial use ?

Update (18-Oct-2004) : I wouldn't like to read too much into the order/speed with which Google responds to user questions. However, it still leaves me with a doubtful feeling. I had earlier (on 15-Oct-2004) asked Google for their stand/take on this "licensing policy" and am yet to receive a reply. A query that I sent on 17-Oct-2004 about "thunderbird support" got answered in about a day. Leaves me wondering if their legal department is still sleeping/wondering or whether there's something for an end user like me to be scared about !
