I don't view Akonadi as lazy or sloppy. It (and Nepomuk, too) works very well on my machine. I have not looked at the source code, so I can't say for certain that the code either optimized or unoptimized. Perhaps the code is really bad, and abundant resources hide this. Or perhaps the code is already optimized, and 2 GB is simply not enough RAM.

Akonadi does more than Thunderbird. If Thunderbird is all you need, that's fine. But to trash Akonadi as unoptimized because it doesn't work well on low-resource machines is just wrong.
