Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The 2007 road map for the Ubuntu Linux operating system includes continuing its focus on the desktop, paying more attention to the server and garnering additional corporate support. Speaking at Ubuntu user conference UbuCon at Google's New York complex on Feb. 16, Steve George, director of support and services at Canonical, said, "The view from the Ubuntu side is that Microsoft has too much of the market. We're going to continue rolling out and making Ubuntu easy to use on the desktop and we'll add increased focus on the server this year."

"To me, GNOME and especially its file dialog, is a non starter with its inability to open remote file systems by default, and the assumption that non of us would like to type a URL of file path."

It does allow you to type the file path if you wish, just use ctrl-l to show the location bar.

Is there a button to do this? Otherwise this smacks of poor UI design.
