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.

If you don't "get" why spatial nautilus is great, I would recommend this article from a few years back

No, thank you. I don't like spatial and I don't need to be told that I'm wrong in my personal preference.

I am not telling anyone that they are wrong with their preference. I'm saying that as an informative comment for those who don't understand what all the fuss is about and actively want to learn about the design choices behind it.

It was not meant to be condescending in any way towards anyone. I'm not saying that those who don't like spatial nautilus are idiots.

I personally alternate between the two modes on a regular basis.
