Gnome Quite a little interesting tidbit on Planet GNOME today. As we all know, the default file manager for the GNOME desktop is Nautilus. While there's nothing inherently wrong with it, it does have this odd interface where actually more screen space is dedicated to controls and buttons than to the actual part that matters: your files. As part of Ubuntu's Papercuts project, a fix has been worked on.

What you show here is a sort of mini-mode Nautilus that I find annoying in Fedora. By default this is what you get when opening something from the desktop, and seems to use its own separate config. It also opens folders in new windows. Don't get it how this mode is useful and why it's there.
