    To Nautilus or not to Nautilus : Ain’t Nautilus too slow?
    by fkoclas on Monday, November 12 @ 03:28:33 GMT

    As soon as Nautilus got out I was excited about its features and looks, but when I tried it, I was very dissapointed. While it looked just as good as expected, it was unacceptably slow, on a 500mhz celeron.

    alp: Although I’ve never really been on the file manager scene, I’m impressed by Konqueror: it’s fast and you can do nifty things like dragging a track off an audio CD to an FTP site to have it encoded to Ogg Vorbis and uploaded directly. It runs fine in GNOME or whatever your desktop du jour happens to be, too. Read on for the submitter’s story.

    So I decided to let it mature a little, hoping things would improve. In between, this computer has been upgraded with a Thunderbird 1.2 ghz. To my surprise, Nautilus 1.0.6 is still too slow for regular use. While it sure is a VERY little faster than before, there not much improvement here, and this could be related only to the fact that its running on faster hardware. Video card is a Matrox G400 Max. (if that could help??)

    Is there any way to get Nautilus browse trough files or are we better off sticking with GMC for now?
