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 totally agree. Nautilus is flat out ugly and impractical. This minimalist approach is one resolution, but I'm more excited about this other project to make it more easily customizable (skinnable?) Maybe different distributions and users will come up with better interfaces.
