Keeping its Linux fan base in mind, Google has updated its Desktop for Linux, which it launched in June. With version 1.1, still in beta, you can search over more image formats and search the content of Microsoft Office documents. The thumbnails in search results are higher quality and you can customize the hot key that launches the quick search box. There's more information on the Inside Google Desktop blog and you can download the application here.
