Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It augments both the indexing AND the querying aspects of Search. It’s an add-on, sitting on top of SP native search, and it provides extremely rich search functionality. I like to suggest that folks look at the ‘shopping’ experience at http://www.bestbuy.com. That was built with FAST… it’ll help you visualize what it can do.

There are two products – FAST Search (standalone) and FAST Search for SharePoint…. FAST Search for SharePoint integrates into your SharePoint environment to provide enhanced search indexing and query time user experience.
