    Nope. The article is about APU only. It's ryzen 2 and rdna 2. But maybe I'm not remember it correctly

It really helps to limit it down to the essential things you'll actually search for and not everything.
    I disagree. The biggest problem I have with baloo is that the process gets stuck in "waiting for disk" state even on NVMe SSD. My laptop then fails to suspend and the process can't even be killed.

    You can google it. But to be brief:
    - Ryzen 2 with RDNA 2 APU, 4C 8T
    - 16 GB DDR5L
    - 64 emmc/ 256 nvme/ 512 high speed nvme

    I've read somewhere in phoronix about these APU. I think it rumoured to be a vapourware IIRC.

    My point was only that it works for my use case, not necessarily only "on my machine".
    Obviously, your use case and your experience is different from mine. It does not mean that you are right and that I'm wrong or viceversa. In fact we are both right. 😉

    I don't care what you use or what your experience with "mainstream OSes" are.
    If it doesn't work for you then I'm sorry.
    Mainstream as in the Linux world sense, including the most popular distros, and also outside like Windows. I should have used a better word.
    You did quote me to say it works on your machine tho. I should have added an emoji because it looks like I was angry typing when I was just making a normal reply. Text do be like that 😂👌🤭

    Like I said I have tested most main stream OSs, all had problems. Not only really slow indexing in some cases but real bugs and corruption even when I only enable a small selection, I have a lot of data and I'm not talking weeb porn collections but real documents. We are in a Linux forum so of course works on my machine or you're holding it wrong are the default answers.

    To be fair, I used to hate KDE after KDE3. Remember it had that baloo process sucking 100% of my CPU constantly, never stopped indexing, so just steered clear from it for years.

    Now I have been using it for a few months, and I am super happy. Sure I feel it improved a lot.

    There was an experiment but no real plan to include it in Plasma 5.

    Uh, what? Arch distributes precompiled binaries like Debian does.
    It's not about precompiled binaries, it's about the default settings a program comes with. Arch prefers to build and ship packages with as close to the default/upstream configuration as possible so if you're used to installing a text editor in Ubuntu that comes with certain features set up, you'll have to set that up yourself on Arch.
