Zeitgeist Datahub Purpose in Ubuntu

From what I can tell Zeitgeist is some sort of data logger, and also something relating to Gnome. What purpose does it serve in Ubuntu and would removing it cause any problems?
How to disable zeitgeist in Ubuntu 11.10?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 6, 2012
I read somewhere that zeitgeist is among the main reasons unity is chosen. But as i upgraded to ubuntu 11.10( 10.10->11.04->11.10) last week, zeitgeist is using up over 50% of my CPU whenever it runs, especially when this service logs my music (my Banshee has around 1000 songs), or my files( i'm a programmer so i modify lots of files)
So can i disable it or at least reduce its running frequency?
Thanks for any reply!
LXer: How to remove Zeitgeist in Ubuntu and why

Published at LXer:
In my desktop I use Xubuntu 12.04, and today i noticed that this distribution shippedd by default the Zeitgeist daemon, a thing that Iím not using at all and that is using resources of my system, so Iíve decided to remove this daemon totally from my system, please note that if you use Gnome 3 or Unity you could have some side effect, or perhaps the system will just become more faster, like the author of the article: Removing Zeitgeist Sped Up Unity .
zeitgeist installed with ubuntu 14.04LTS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 1, 2014
I went to ubuntu and downloaded the iso for ubuntu 14.04 lts. Burned the disk and installed w/internet connection.
After some exploring I installed Synaptic. Used it to look for games and other cool stuff. When I got to the end/bottom of the list I saw something called 'zeitgeist' was installed on my computer as part of the iso, I assume. Regardless... I read the description of its function and immediately removed it from my computer. If you are running ubuntu, you may want to examine your installed programs and look for this program installed on your system.
I like the look/feel of ubuntu and do not want to change distros. I do not understand the reason for this program being in the iso.
I would appreciate any feedback.
Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must
Ubuntu vs Mint

Just when I was about to install Ubuntu, I had a "why not look at Mint" question thrown at me. The reasons, my friends said, is that the Mint desktop (Cinnamon) is more like Win 7 plus the fact that Ubuntu has "lost its way" like Microsoft did with its illegitimate child Windows 8, in trying to be both Desktop and Tablet Operating System. True or False?
1) I am a Desktop only user - for business, no gaming whatsoever
2) I never have used the Windows Start Button except to shut down the computer. I never start programs from the Start Menu. I Do Not Need a Start Button.
3) I prefer to organize my icons with a program called "Fences"; and would like my Taskbar on the bottom of the screen(s) and absolutely not on the side of the screen
4) I need to network with Win 7 workstations and a file server.
2) Which of the two is faster? Ubuntu or M

Let's compare the latest versions of the two. What are the differences? Real differences, not mint is green. Things related to 64 bit, flash, codecs and other technical distinctions.
