I was actually quite pleased with it! I found its performance quite snappy, after the full indexing had run, of course. Maybe your systems under typical usage generate many more files than I do, but the partial indexing to keep the list current was never a problem for me performance-wise.

I've since switched using Strigi/Nepomuk in KDE, as it integrates very tidily with Dolphin, and is also quite fast. (Tie that in with default Subversion support in Dolphin, and it's one of my favorite programs.)
