    That only affects the time it takes to start Nautilus. It is still far to slow to even list files in a directory! If you use custom icons, or configure it so that the icon is a preview of the file you may as well count on it being two or three times slower. I thought it was just my moderately old hardware (Pentium II @ 350MHz) but I feel even more disappointed to find out it is because Nautilus is so slow.

    i used gnome for a long time (primary because i wanted a cool environment to develop applications for), but got very dissapointed with it.

    some months ago i switched to kde and i really love it (especially with the liquid style from mosfet), qt is _much_ nicer to program with than gtk.

    i haven’t tried gnustep yet as a development platform, but currently my favourite is qt/kde.
