    Upon first arrival Beagle was announced as something of a must-have and I accepted it more or less by reflex.
    Some month ago I realized that I never used it once. Meanwhile it was hogging my system's resources and slowing things down.
    So I got rid of it. I haven't missed it once.
    Well I disable it during install.

    I have a lot of documents and just CANNOT live without it.

    By the way, it was 1 year ago since Beable has become stable : no more memory leak, no more CPU monger, no more indexing on battery...

    A good application that don't deserve the reputation I am seeing here.

    I have also heard that from some friends that Beagle's recent versions perform better. However, I have been using SUSE since 10.1 and back then the case wasn't so. My practice dates back to that time and I haven't any need to change it. When the need arises I might check it again.

    I removed it myself as it was nothing but a waste of performance, especially on an old-school computer like mine. It was also useless to me because I rarely search for content as I always keep everything organized and if I do perform a search it's always limited to 1 directory.

    Keeping your files organized is not enough when you have 10 Gb of files (pdf, doc, text), a bunch of emails, tomboy notes and eventually IRC chats that can have some precious data.
    I mean I use my system in a professional environment and Beagle is great for that.
    At home, of course, I wouldn't need it...

    Waste of performance ? look at this :

    There is no Beagle at all, though it is running.

    I disabled it. It's a PITA. I really don't understand why beagle is enabled by default. An application which silently changes group ownership in my mysql directory and severely affects my system load should never be started by default. If the user opts to start it, ok. But that should be the user's choice.

    Hi,

    It just slowed things down and didn't have a use for me.
    I deleted it after a week and never looked back.

    I don't see why it's installed by default.

    Regards,
    Barry.
