Editorial "I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?"

GNOME does support tracker also, it is not dependant on Beagle. It's just merely the fact that distro providers usually choose Beagle for one or another reason. Blame the packagers instead ;)


Ubuntu Gutsy wisely uses Tracker rather than Beagle as as its default metadata database. However it is distributed with the Mono libraries and the F-Spot and Tomboy applications installed. Nice applications but hardly essential. No great loss to uninstall them.
