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]."

From what I've read (sort of hinted at in the review), Tracker and Strigi are working on a common API so that, in theory, one could use Tracker as the front end database (that'll be used for more than just indexing, e.g. a bookmarks database) and Strigi as the backend indexer. Not sure if this will pan out.
