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.

As you can see, this patch makes Nautilus look almost exactly like Thunar, which can only be seen as a good thing (at least from my perspective).

I couldn't agree more. I'm a huge XFCE fan and don't see the need for KDE and GNOME (just IMO - choice is a good thing, too).
