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, while your at it, Dump the bloated Gnome and use XFCE.

I know Xfce only from Xubuntu and at least there it looks almost identical to Ubuntu/GNOME with the only difference being that the default theme is blue instead of brown.
Personally, I don't understand the intention in developing two almost identical DEs when the main difference is a few different apps. It would be like Peter Penz developing his own Qt-based DE just because he didn't like Konqueror. Instead Dolphin was initially a 3rd party KDE 3.x application.
