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]."

doesn't seem to give instant results on a 500 gb disk, don't you think? and does it give results from compressed files (strigi does...), or meta-data from images and stuff? and does it tell you when and where you downloaded the file, or from who you got it? does it give contacts if you search for a friend's name? and his emails and the files he send you?

sorry to bring this so harsh, but it's 2007.
