It actually does rock, a lot. And I don't like file mgrs ;)
The usability aspects are handled excellently -- and I love the
anti-aliased text, too, it's done well. I'm really looking forward to the
future Nautilus releases.

The big problem I've had with it is Mozilla, of course -- with Nautilus,
Mozilla itself (as nightlies) and Galeon all competing to be *the*
mozilla, only one of 'em can work. It's absurd.
Online drives only IMHO make sense in first-world countries like the US,
where bandwidth is cheap ;)
It's a handy way to share files -- but on the Irish internet it's too
expensive and time-consuming to use from a 56k dialup. grr.
(Wonder if they're using DAV for that?)
