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.

No, it's making a change to one mode of nautilus. It's not changing something and then complaining about the change. Yes, spatial is clean, but this is not about making browse mode more like spatial, it's merely about cleaning the cruft on browser mode.

The article should clarify this as with the text, there is nothing alluding this to only affect the browser mode:

^^that text also uses the word "default" earlier in the blurb, so I had mistakenly assumed it also affected the default mode of nautilus (which is stupid really, as I know that the default is very clean, but such is the power of suggestion).
