Some easy way (one click) to switch off Akonadi + Nepomuk + Strigi
Please help us - the users, who decide to use in the real business the Linux PIM management.
Please make possible for us to choose - will we use the Semantic Desktop or just would like to switch it off for some reason.
Since years the idea of so called Semantic Desktop is taking huge time and efforts but results still are unappealing.
I admit the work of the developers and any one should be thankful for their efforts in making KDE the best free desktop ever. But... please give some chance to users to choose what they need and prefer.
Since years this Semantic Desktop experiment still can not provide enough good results to use in the real business life. Now with the openSUSE 12 thanks to Akonadi + Nepomuk + Strigi the elegance and speed of the Linux Desktop is gone and we have some Desktop like Windows. This is because most of the hardware potential is used just for internal processes of the Semantic Desktop. This way the Desktop is getting slow and unresponiive, the HDD is running mostly all the time, a lot of RAM and HDD is used, and now KMail get buggy slow, etc ... Let users can have one unbroken PIM Management for their real life until the Semantic Desktop can provide the needed experience. Let those who prefer the Semantic Desktop in its current condition can use it as he needs.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
Ideally we need one additional item in Kickoff -> System Settings. Now there is available the item 'Desktop Search (Nepomuk/Strigi)'.
May be some button to make possible to switch on or off the Semantic Desktop will do the job?
Or please provide in the already available item 'Desktop Search (Nepomuk/Strigi)' a software button or any other easy visible tool to switch off or on all this Semantic Desktop components.
Please possibly change the related software to be capable to work with or without all this Semantic Desktop technology.
Let make possible for the end users to decide whet they need - a Desktop with or without this Semantic Desktop technology.
