| Search - a very important topic when it comes to data in general. The same is 
| true for metadata and all that is Nepomuk. I blogged about the virtual 
| folders idea for KMail which will be realized through Nepomuk. But before 
| that there is the "simple" desktop search. We know it from systems like 
| Beagle or Strigi. With Nepomuk, however, a lot more is possible. We are just 
| getting started.

| KMetaData: It provides easy to use functions for system developers to 
| create and read meta data in storage. Think of applications where meta 
| data are an essential part of the program: Digikam and Amarok are 
| typical examples.
