provide regular expressions in all searches
Add regex to all searches, instead of just wildcard.

Yes, a more sophisticated method for searching would be appreciated. You could add an interface to shield beginners from Regex if needed.

Even better that wildcard search :-)
Most definitely! Regex is essential, The Unix/Linux community is especially aware of this. Please vote for Virtual Search of Virtual Folders also, if you feel so inclined.
very good! (but have to find a free vote :-) )
Would suggest first adding mid-word searching (e.g., "*" wildcard prefix), normal boolean (including "Not"), and "Near", etc. operators. Most end users are already very familiar with these searches. Then regular expressions. Have found that regular expressions, useful for the technical minded, can be daunting for non technical users and are prone to user mistakes.
I'll go with this!
