OK, here's the issue: you're not "most people". I'm not most people. All
of us subscribed to this mailing list are probably not most people. And
most people don't name their files orderly, and put them in logical
places. I've seen people who write something about a project about the
Civil War and name it "project.doc". I would name it "Civil War
Project.odt", and that person put the file in their My Pictures folder
because that's where the Save dialog box is open to. They are the people
who would benefit most from Beagle, and that's also about 90% of the
computing population, so if openSUSE wants to reach that 90%, it a good
idea to have Beagle installed by default and turned on.
system. I am the one who started this thread, and as I stated at the
beginning, I have a dual core Turion L52 64bit processor, 1.5Gigs of
memory and a 7200 RPM Sata drive, and the performance went out the
door. Other than a large MBox in my Thunderbird, I don't have that
much data to index, and Beagle took 700Meg or RAM and 1Gig of SWAP,
niced or not, that causes a lot of swapping.
I think a bigger and more appropriate question is to determine WHY your
performance is degraded. I'm running 10.3 on two boxes with far less
power than you, with the exception that on one of those boxes, it is a
750GB Sata drive. And I have had absolutely NO performance degradation
whatsoever, and I do see value in Beagle, even if I don't use it all
So maybe we should focus on what are the issues related to your hardware
configuration/setup? THEN, we can get to the heart of the problems some
users (but not all!) experience. At which point, you'll have a happy
system if you don't need Beagle, and others will have a happy system if
they DO need Beagle.
Otherwise, all you're implying is have it your way, and not anyone
else's way. And I find that logic rather puzzling.
