Ugh, what a bunch of irrational haters.  Those goons are still around
unfortunately.  But don't worry: they hate KDE4, and they will have
GNOME 3 and Tracker.

I imagine openSUSE will simple include Tracker at some point - hopefully
soon.  I haven't paid much attention to Tracker but at a glance it has
much of Beagles functionality and already has some integration into
Zeitgeist.  Interesting that much of what Dashboard and the like first
hoped to accomplish is finally coming into being.

Claiming he is "stupid" is also absurd.  He wrote a good chunk of
Gnumeric;  solid evidence against stupidity.
