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]."

yeah, 3 index tools would be bad in the long run. but they'll all support d-bus, hopefully standardized, so you can swap 'em and use the same in each environment.

the mere fact we (now...) have several index daemons is NOT a bad thing, btw. it's how Free Software works, and in the end, the one with the best design hopefully wins and gets used most. darwinism rules the FOSS world, and that's a good thing.
