And this is part of the problem. Since it works and doesn't cause
you problems, then people complaining about them must be wrong.
No, but it means people claiming it is "useless" and "never" works *are*
simply wrong (since it, in fact, does work for some people). The
problem here is hyperbole; it makes real discussion essentially
Beagle's been a useless PITA for many since it was introduced. I
don't even install it anymore, mainly because I have NEVER found ANY
use for a Desktop Search tool. As I have stated repeatedly, when I
work on a customer's system(generally Windows, but the same applies),
they don't know they have it or why it's there, and when I tell them
their system will run faster without it, they all say chuck it.
Desktop Search is an answer looking for a problem.
No, because you choose to not use a new tool has no bearing on the merit
of the new tool. I simply don't see how Meta-Space, enter a few
characters, down-arrow, enter to get to exactly the
document/contact/e-mail/etc... that I want is a "useless" feature. It
is just different and requires adapting one's workflow to the newly
Say you don't like it and/or won't use it - fine. But don't claim it is
useless, broken, or a resource hog [which it isn't].
Quite some time ago Beagle would run hog wild on the system occasionally
- that doesn't happen anymore. Obviously it does appear to create extra
load AT FIRST while it does the initial index, but once done it only
re-indexes things as they change and presents very minimal load. I
suspect most people dramatically overreact to Beagle's initial indexing.
There is, I believe, a huge lag in many people's perception as what
Beagle was in its first versions to what it is now; they are no more
valid than comparing Open Office 1.x to Open Office 3.x. If someone
doesn't use something then clearly they aren't qualified to speak to its
*current* condition. I don't do 3D graphics - so I don't comment on the
state of Blender, OpenGL, etc...
