awww, come on guys. Tracker daemon doesnt have to start at boot and can be disabled/stopped.
I dont want these features to be running as defauult.
I am just saying that they are very very nice and it would be sweet if vec has at least one tool that does that in the menu.
I am not saying google-desktop is the best.I find it rather slow.
I vote for tracker as being the lightest/fastest. It has a build-in gui frontend,which is way better than catfish.
There are many sweet things to take from the open source world.Putting too much sugar in a distro is not always the best thing to do...but innovation on the desktop scene is something that the common user seeks and is interested in.
Just look at the top distros.They are fighting over the user interest.
Ubuntu with its tracker tool,suse with beagle,fedora with its online desktop/bigboard feature... they are all including whats most interesting/new. I agree that those distros are bloated and heavy, yes.
alright, as i think of it, dont include a indexing/search tool. I think vec should leave the choice to the user,while staying light as a feather. Thats why many users pick it anyways... at least upgrade gimp to 2.4. It may be a RC,but the new features make it about 30% more useable than its predecesor.
I myself use this type of tool to save time ,spent of dull repetative navigations to the same files over and over again.Its exactly their organisation to different folders that makes me navigate through number of directories to get to them.
I mean mp3s,docs,html,php,folders... and i have bookmarked too many locations... such a tool trully saves me hours,if i put together all the time it saved.
It is not forgetting where the files were put, but the navigation to them...believe me,its a luxury to have.
