Well, the title is misleading. It isn’t actually dead (or the former ain’t alive either, technically :P)
But it’s quite funny how the widgets show my CPU and RAM usage:
Well, on a technical end, I am fine with the RAM usage, it’s not even 50%. But the CPU spikes isn’t what makes me very comfortable. ‘top’ says that’s it’s Amarok that causes them. Amarok in general uses resources quite efficiently. But the collection scanner is what that causes this spike. Is it the fact that my collection is on a NTFS drive? Should I be worried about that?
