Gnome Ah, Nautilus, GNOME's default file manager. It's been with us for a long time now, and it has certainly been at the centre of a number of controversies. Do we go with a spatial or a navigational Nautilus? Should we replace the location bar with a breadcrumb bar? And now, it's time to move on. Recently, it has become apparent to many that Nautilus could use a make-over.

I guess to make everyone happy you have to tell people to use Dolphin

Dolphin doesn't sit in GNOME at all. It looks totally out of place, and it doesn't integrate with anything there. Besides, not everyone likes Dolphin.

Sure, but it does nearly everything like Nautilus should according to this and it can be customized to address every nitpick people have (add Delete, Stop, Home, Up etc if you like. I personally added Copy/paste/delete on my netbook)

Dolphin doesn't really fit KDE either. Dolphin took a lot of hints from GNOME, particularly the philosophy of "remove all functionality that enables to user to operate in a way the developer finds unaesthetic". Fortunately there's still enough classic KDE customizabilty left that it remains usable.

More to the point, Most of the Linux User Base *LOATHES* the nonsense the "so-called" UI "EXPERTS" that hang out on this site wants to inflict on them.

In other words, *GET A FRICKING LIFE MORONS*

Well, it's then a case of pick your poison. How long are people going to wait for a decent file manager, nevermind one integrated with Gnome?

Besides, not everyone likes Dolphin.

I'm sure not everyone likes Nautilus either.
