Benchmarks "A number of search engines are available for the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, many based around the open source Lucene search engine. It would be tremendous if we could adopt one of these search engines for the Gnome platform, so we can provide the type of integrated search experience for our users that they really need, irrespective of which distort they are using. So to help in this assessment we have carried out a comparison of four different Unix based indexers [.pdf]."

odd inconsistency

For some reason Beagle lost points for being written in C# and needing Mono, but JIndex didn't lose points for being written in Java and requiring a jvm.

Preferences aside, that seems a bit odd.
