Why I'm not impressed with HotBot's Deskbar

Everybody seems to think that the HotBot Deskbar is the coolest thing around. But, really, why would I use it, when I can get everything that HotBot claims is wonderful by downloading Dave's Quick Search Toolbar? The HotBot Deskbar is based on the Dave's Quick Search code, which I've been using that software since version 2.0, if I remember correctly. And with Dave's version, there isn't a huge HotBot logo on the thing. It'd be like if I were to download Netscape 7.0 instead of Mozilla 1.4. I'd much rather use the open-source code underneath the product, not the commercial product with all of it's added "features."
