Five Best Linux Distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| There are many, many Linux distributions, and a lot of unique reasons to like

| This is just some interesting reading you guys might enjoy. It seems, the

Crystal desktop search applet.

| Over new year, I've been playing around with Strigi and Nepomuk, which are
| the two technologies around desktop search and "making sense of your data".
| Strigi is the underlying library that is used to analyze all sorts of files
| and index those results. Nepomuk provides a semantic layer on top of this
| information, and a nice KDE API for easy integration in applications. While
| Nepomuk is only lately maturing, it shows some nice ways to interact with
| information on your desktop. Nepomuk uses RDF and ontologies to make sense of
| your data. It has the concept of types of data (think of a photo being an an
| image), and how those types relate to each other. It also stores metadata
| (for the photo example, that'd be size, camera model, and so on.
