I also will add onto this thread, as someone that has continually had
with beagle and have voiced my opinion on it.

I find Tracker pretty usable and acceptable.  I will whisper this silently
here as to
not wrinkle the feathers from other threads, "Tracker uses less cpu and
binds IO
even less if the filesystem is mounted noatime, ssssshhhhh".  Actually
tracker should
open all the files noatime and that bug has been filed and agreed upon by
tracker team.

My only real gripe right now is that it doesn't open my IM logs in pidgin,
but as
normal text files.  Other than that it runs happily on my system and I
don't even know it is there.

I haven't poked at the code much, so I can't comment on that.
