Gnome Imendio improves Nautilus on the Novell desktop by providing support for integrated Beagle search functionality. Imendio developed the low level integration and implemented the user interface design from the specifications supplied by Novell. This has resulted in the ability for GNOME users to search for files and folders using their standard file management tool. The results are available in the Nautilus branch called nautilus-search.

Why C#?

Why does Beagle have to be written in C#? Is it impossible to get its features/functionality by implementing it in C/C++ or Python? Or even Java?

Microsoft's good will is a very big dependency for software to have.

Could be done in java just as easily, infact lucene, the search engine part of it was a java app which they had to port to C# to be able to write Beagle in C#.

Lucene has a number of ports to other languages, probably a C++ one as well.
