File managers

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 08, 2007 10:42 AM
It's a bit of a stretch to say Gnome is built around Nautilus - that implies a lot more similarity with ROX than actually exists. Nautilus is just the file manager provided by Gnome, not as integrated as with Konqueror on KDE, much less ROX.

In ROX, the file manager is a vital part of the desktop, not just a handy program for keeping an eye on your file system. Everything is built around the use of it, hence the emphasis on drag and drop, and the lack of file open/save dialogs..
