Parent article: The Spatial Way
The GNOME developers made a design decision to make spatial nautilus the default mode. Why does that make them arrogant?
Because they have removed currently existing methods for changing defaults.
This is even more applicable to the WM discussions above, but note this from the page referred to in the article
It's also interesting to note that newer releases of Nautilus will have this available as an option in the Preferences (Edit -> Preferences) dialog - but currently, your only way is to make an edit within GConf itself.
I haven't noticed any refutation of the comment earlier that suggested
this option was going back in so quickly because of all the comments.
