Gnome Only a few days ago, we ran an article on the future of KDE and GNOME, and which of the two had the brighter future based on their developmental processes. Barely has that discussion ended, or the GNOME engineering team comes with a pretty daunting plan to introduce a fairly massive reworking of the GNOME interface for GNOME 3.0 (2.30). Read on for the details.

Edit, Preferences, Behavior, "Always open in browser windows" checkbox. Checked, it's an explorer-like interface, uncheck and it's spacial But why be bothered with the facts...

I've always found the text for that option to be pretty vague and easily missed. I can tell you for a fact that you haven't always been able to configure Nautilus like that (spatial was intended to be the complete de facto default), and that's only after a few arms have been twisted up backs as to how brain damaged spatial browsing is for anyone doing a lot of file management.

To make spatial browsing actually work then you need a way of managing and organising all the open windows representing each folder that result (Expose for file management or something like that), and that's why, errr......things like treeviews were invented. Duh.
