Member since:

For one thing, it tries to do too many things at once (god knows how browsing a basically tree-like structure is similiar to documents with interlocking hyperlinks is beyond me). I suppose I'd normally bring up how non-spatial file managers are always going to be less than ideal and inefficient to use, but I suppose that wouldn't do any good, as the chances of somebody knowing anything about UI design is fairly low, and if they do they wouldn't be arguing in the first place. I'll offload this debate onto this article, instead:

Honestly, I think current DEs should learn a lesson from the command line--small, specialized, and integratable == good; big, bloated, and disintegrated == bad.
