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.

Hell, XFCE is bloated, I use the console exclusively and let me tell you it screams on my Quad Core CPU with 4GB RAM! /sarcasm

I'd really loooove to see some hard numbers showing how GNOME is so bloated compared to XFCE.

I can't comment on bloat of GNOME vs. Xfce. However, I run GNOME's NetworkManager applet under KDE (the KDE one doesn't work well for me) and I'm a bit confused why it loads gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor, some CD burning capability, etc. into my RAM.
I have enough RAM not to care a lot about those nm-applet dependencies. I'm just telling what I observe.

PS: Before anybody mentions it: WiCD doesn't work for me either.

I'm about to release a new KDE4 knetworkmanager version. If you have any unreported issues preventing you using the applet other than

* not shipped with fedora (changing for F12)
* crashing Plasma (fixed)

please let me know.
