One feature down, 3945349878345 to go until Nautilus equals Konqueror


Was that really needed?

Does it even need feature parity with Konqueror? AFAIK even KDE has moved to a "simpler" file manager (Dolphin) by default (have no idea where that lies in the comparison...).

From an editorial standpoint, it was certainly poor form. Even as a regular comment, it would be of questionable value. Then again, OSNews gets lots of posts of questionable value, and we're used to it. But putting such a comment in the story blurb was just plain tacky.

Stop taking software so seriously. It was just an innocent joke.

Up. Lighten. You figure it out.

"Does it even need feature parity with Konqueror? AFAIK even KDE has moved to a "simpler" file manager (Dolphin) by default"

This ironic turn of events (KDE switching to Dolphin while Nautilus continues to improve) is one of the reasons I moved away from KDE. Gnome is on my machine. KDE4 is not. KDE3 remains however and will stay there until it is no longer in Debian Stable (or Testing if I get antsy). I for one am glad to see Nautilus improve. It's still far from being any sort of mess.
