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.

Was I the only one?

I saw this coming a long time ago. It's an amazing function to just search from a file browser. It helps a user find things if he or she has lost them. It's not a way of taking over Nautilus I don't think. Finder in OSX has Spotlight integrated into it and it works like a charm. I dont use it often because I try to keep myself organized, and it's easier to know exactly where I'm going.

This is a good move for the Beagle and Nautalists people.

At least on OS X, it's a lot faster to use Spotlight to open less frequently used programs and documents (i.e., those that aren't on the dock) than it is to navigate to them using Finder (or even the command line), even if you know exactly where they are.
