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.

RE[5]: Check your premise

But you can complain about a different interface that is included in nautilus. You're right that it's not the default interface, but it's a popular interface. There's nothing wrong with improving the browser interface, which a lot of people (including me) prefer. As I mentioned previously, if you prefer the default, spatial interface, then more power to you.
