Tracker seems to be the gnome counter part to the nepomuck /anaconda trash on

Its looks like that the GNOME and KDE are only usefull for single user/
single PC usage. Does somebody knows a GUI for Linux which does NOT
introduces these indexing crap ?

In KDE4, you can simply set the option to disable Nepomuk. It's on by
default, but it's easy to switch off.. just a check box in the config,
and it's off. You could easily propagate that option setting to all
users if all users want to disable the feature.
