    This is a lovely application, designed exactly the way I wanted for a local-disk alternative to Evernote: instead of trusting all of your personal and business data in a cloud (now owned by Google/NSA), you can search your own files right where they are! Sadly, the app was written in Java, which is great for cross-platform use, but horrible if you have anything more than a mundane collection of files. At least in Linux, where I roam, anything more than 10K files (even when indexed as separate folders) Java maxes out memory and CPU and soon locks up the app. After spending a day trying to tweak this from the developer suggestions, my up-to-date Java simply would not behave. At some point it's simply more trouble than it's worth. I hope one day this otherwise-awesome application will be ported to C# (or equiv.) for real users with real-sized data needs.
