Would you like it to make coffee too?

I'm the last one to stop someone making me coffee.
So what archive app do you feel is better than file-roller? Nothing beats file-roller for me.

I personally like the way I could browse archives in Norton commander. Apart from that, if I just want to extract stuff I use rightclick --> extract here.
Drag and drop works fine for me, so does copy and paste - from nautilus to file-roller and vice versa.

Strange that it doesn't work here then.
I would rather have the file manager and the archive tool be seperate apps that work well together. I like a slim file manager.

That depends on how one interprets archives. Is an archive a document, like a PDF or a Jpeg? In that case opening it in a seperate app is imo. the way to go.
Or is it just a way to store files, basically like a directory or a mountpoint?
In that case I think the filemanager should do it.
Whats slow about it?

Sorry, I meant Nautilus, I've been very unclear here.
And yes, I like it to be fast and slim as well. But I'd be willing to accept a slight tradeoff for functionality I'd really like.

We had something revolutionary to look forward to a few years back when gnome 'broke the mold' and birthed 2.0 now we are just all waiting to see it 'brought up to speed' and they are doing a great job of it lately IMO.

Party on, Gnome!

Totally agree, and I have no problem with it. However, I think it's sad that the three-point-zero page got discarded, I find brainstorms and general 'could-be discussions' always interesting when it comes to software.
