From the ridiculously brief and lacking in content article, there was one difference that I found rather interesting:

Apparently, the process of Beagle actually indexing a file is exposed in the UI, so you can stop it if you want.

This worries me slightly, I mean, when will the file be indexed again properly? And it also rather suggests the developers have little faith in the indexing being "unobtrusive."

Personally, I think the indexing should be taken of completely behind the scenes. There's no reason why the user should ever have to no what is going on index-wise, in the same way they shouldn't have to know how the hard drive is handling its cache at a particular moment.
