    Re: To Nautilus or not to Nautilus : Ain’t Nautilus too slow (Score: 0)

    with woody, nautlius, and konq (apt-upgraded a few days ago), i’d say konq is about 2 to 3 times faster than nautlius.. is is even slower in sid? (on an athlon 1.2ghz, 256mb ram)

    I think that nautilus is almost every bit a windows explorer clone as konq is, btw. konq just does web browsing better.

    Hmmmm…. since I guess I have nothing to do, I made another partition on which I’m currently installing Debian Potato (2.2r4, over DSL) along with Ximian Desktop see how it runs. I hope it runs faster but I honestly don’t think so and quite frankly, Potato is getting OLD.. oh well… nothing like dual-booting two different versions of Debian 🙂 OooOoO perhaps I should make another partition for woody 😉 heeeee Triple Booting Debian hehehe gotta love that =)

    konqie’s advantages (Score: 0)
    by Anonymous on Tuesday, November 13 @ 00:30:41 GMT

    I’ve never tried Nautilus, but I feel moved to defend the K against Explorer. Konqueror actually does have some innovations and improvements over Win2k Explorer. Here’s a sample:

    – Builtin command line. I use my CL as much in win2k as I do in Linux, so it’s a real ding against win2k that it doesn’t have this feature.

    – Really complex paning scheme. You can add more panes, more views of the data to the same window.

    – Rendering of info pages and man pages. Windows doesn’t have info or man pages, but let’s be clear: Win2k Explorer can’t render them, and Konqueror can. (Hint: #manpage or man://manpage or man://manpage(section) will get you a man page. info://infopage will get you a gnu info page.)

    – Speed, arguably. Konqie “feels” faster than Windows 2000 Explorer on the same hardware. I can’t measure this precisely, but some would say how fast it feels is more important than how fast it actually is. Things like giving visual clues while the file manager is working are important.
