    Im running on Kernel 2.4.13 right now, all optimized for my hardware and I find Nautilus’ 3 to 5 seconds delay when browsing local files too much…

    Even Mac OS 10.1 on an unsupported machine (7300 200mhz 604e) (slowww) browse trough files faster… there might be 2 seconds waiting there.

    I run Nautilus (Ximian-Gnome) on a Woody machine with kernel 2.4.14. I have a PII 450 with 192MB. I found that when I use Nautilus to handle the desktop, the CPU usage jumps to 25-35% from about 1% when using Gnome-Midnight Commander. It makes my machine too slow to use, so I don’t think VM is the issue here.

    Nautilus is usable as a standalone file manager, but GMC is much faster. As for viewing pr0^H^H^H images, I prefer Gqview.

    That said, Nautilus looks great, and as soon as it gets optimized, it’s gonna kick arse.
