Are these malware of some kind?
Nepomuk is sorta, although it is included with a KDE install. It'll eat
your cpu until it's done cataloging everything on your machine for
hours, to make it easy to hand over all evidence to the FBI.
I dumped KDE when I tried to remove nepomuk with synaptic. It popped up
and said it would have to remove all traces of KDE and it's desktop. I
replied "Hell yeah.." and savagely hit the ENTER key with a sneer ...I
haven't used KDE since. I won't have my desktop bound to something I
happen to loathe and I'll have nothing to do with a mindset that goes

There are maybe ten people on Earth, and a semi-sentient frozen gas on
the surface of Titan, that uses Nepomuk. The gas is considered a
criminal by his/her/its kind and is in hiding, his/her/its real
whereabouts are unknown. But, he/she/it is all over the Internet,
posting as the user "anonymous".
