Do you only use Ubuntu for your desktop?

With Fedora and Debian, at least, spatial mode is still the default, and always have been the default since that was introduced by Gnome. As far as I know Ubuntu is the only one that does browser mode by default.

(Of course users can select one or the other)

Ack, yes, you caught me. Debian and Centos on the servers, Ubuntu on the desktop. I try Fedora every few releases but I run into graphics (Radeon 3650) and printer (Samsung ML2510) driver issues, too lazy to fix em.

Microsoft and Apple ditched spatial almost a decade ago; I thought Linux had finally caught up. My condolences to anyone who still has to open and drag around 22 separate windows just to find the song you want to play. :)

Oh, Samsung's proprietary printer driver is awful. Ditch it and just use
pxlmono...

What bug numbers? Seems strange that the same or similar bugs would be present in various releases of Fedora but not also affect other distributions.

That would be a remarkable coincidence, since Fedora stays close to upstream and isn't likely to have broken those things in distro-specific patches.

Finding songs to play is done by Banshee, for me. Why would I use a file manager for that? =)
