How, How, How?  I ask myself, how could I have missed using Dolphin for so long? 

I say this because Dolphin uses some program, nepotuk or some such, along with strigi, and indexes the hard drive on the fly.  I can search across files with Dolphin and find stuff on my hard drive quickly, while, best I can tell, my old friends Thunar and xfe require a file by file search. 

Unless someone knows another way to continuously index the hard drive, its Dolphin for me from now on.

SOHO uses Nepomuk, although if you have a low end system, it can easily bring it to its knees during its first run. On my poor ol' Toshiba notebook, it got so bad I finally turned the bloody thing off permanently. Haven't tried it on my ASUS (turned it off immediately after installing SOHO). I'll make a note and turn it on and see how things go (in 7.1 B0.43 right now).

I was on the fence about KDE4 for years, but made the switch somewhere around version 4.9.5. I remember the indexer in 4.9.3 being a hog, but by now (currently on 4.11), it is very well behaved. If running, it immediately stops when I touch the mouse or keyboard. No slowdown noticed.

KDE4 has improved a lot just in the last year, and on a decent machine it returns a very nice user experience. By current standards, the hardware requirements are not unreasonable at all, I'd say comparable to W7.

Turned the search service back on and I'm fairly impressed. Not taking a hit at all while doing my normal routines. Granted, this notebook is a bit more robust than the old Toshiba was, but all in all, it's performing quite well with no performance hit on the system.
