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.

Couldn't have put any better...
While the GNOME community and Nautilus developers prefer their stagnant way of improving the GNOME desktop, someone actually wrote a paper that explained why this needed change.

I think users already noticed that YEARS AGO... It's just that no one was really a developer. Or occupied any position inside the GNOME project.

I think this can be an anwser to those who said: "Go use frigging pcfman or frigging xfe... we *LOVE* the way Nautilus is..."[/i]

Go, go BUNTUS!
