Novell and Ximian "Nat Friedman has been one of the driving forces behind the development of the Linux desktop for a few year now. First with his own company Ximian, founded together with Mono chief architect Miguel de Icaza, after its acquisition now inside Novell. A few months ago he has been named 'Technologist of the Year' by the VarBusiness magazine for his work around the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. Since then he has been promoted to Chief Technology and Strategy Officer for Open Source, besides the desktop he is also overseeing Novells server business now. During Novells Brainshare Andreas Proschofsky had the possibility to sit down with Friedman and talk about the Linux desktop, the consequences of the Microsoft agreement and the mistakes of the Hula project."

The newest version ( of Beagle still takes around 50 Mbyte according to exmap. Tracker takes around 7 according to exmap.

Tracker uses much less memory, is much faster (you can especially feel it with Nautilus) and doesn't bug the system the same way as Beagle does, though Beagle continues to get fixes for deadlocks.

Beagle OTOH has a great GUI. But that's the one thing Beagle has going for it.
