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.

I didn't connect "spatial mode" to that, reading the first comment should've made it obvious, my bad.
But no, I do not think "Ubuntu makes GNOME" and neither I use that distro. So far I witnessed spatial mode in Fedora only and directly running Nautilus avoided it. It seems that most distributions I came across are eagerly changing GNOME defaults.
