I disagree with you. Why Ubuntu is considering to ship Tracker instead

As you can see that archive was 86 MB not 1Gb and also Xubuntu is used
on low memory machines but you don't care of this, for you it matters
ONLY usability.

I want to become an Xubuntu developer. What is needed? Your
permission? I hope don 't ;) I am a biased person? So far the only
reason you have for saying I'm a prejudicial person is my clear refuse
to ship gutsy with GNOME libraries and this is enough for making me
such a person? The patronize tone is needed again, Jani, Jani.
