beagle isn't fast, it's dog slow and eats memory. someone with more than 2 gig's of data (non-movie) can't use it. I hope the engine used for KDE 4 will be faster (and I bet it will, as Strigi is currently already some 6 times faster at indexing than Beagle, while doing more like calculating hash to find duplicate files).

This was true until 0.25or26 (or people with newer beagle but older mono than 1.13.6, beagle requires/depends on this version because in that version of mono, devels fixed a big leak and beagle was the biggest consumer of exactly that leak)

Just a little of my experience with beagle, beagle never gets over 46MB(19MB RSS) on my computer. And computer is running non-stop. Desktop search never took more than one second (quite less in fact).
Funny thing is that I don't either limit it down or pose low memory to it. My machine has 4GB of RAM.

Spotlight on the other hand on my mac mini, index is 2GB large and if I have damn thing enabled it consumes all RAM
