Currently, Tracker has advantages compared to Beagle, mainly smaller
memory footprint. But Beagle also has its strong points, such as better
integration with applications (Evolution, Firefox and Gaim for example),
as well as much wider testing. It's been enabled by default in Fedora
Core for two releases now, and it's also enabled by default in
openSUSE / SLED.

That could be cool, but it won't be of any use to Ubuntu until
applications start supporting it. I think Rhythmbox is the most likely
