I admit I'm in the minority of people who organizes files in a consistent manner. I always find files quickly, usually in only a few seconds. I don't need this indexing and caching overhead. Yes, those options can be disabled, but for me using KDE4 would remain be a long road for many of the reasons I have shared previously. Not impossible, just a long road. Perhaps I'm just getting old and cranky. My existing system works the way I want. I remain content with how Trinity fits my way of using a desktop computer.

If somebody ripped the akonadi crap from kdepim and renamed to razor-qt-pim, then I suspect that would create a buzz. I suppose there would be the option of using razor-qt and then building tdelibs/tdepim....

Razor Qt is this:
Application launcher
Settings center

A very, very, very basic desktop. I wouldn't really consider it an
environment. I achieve the same thing available here with Openbox and
a few other programs.
