This is actually on the edge of being actionable libel -- File 
Manager in Windows 3.11 is to Apple Finder / Nautilus in spatial 
mode as edlin is to ed/ex -- half-baked, misunderstood copy of 
the interesting idea.

I like spatial mode actually (I hated konqueror as file manager 
while being in KDE and used Krusader instead for lack of better 
file manager). I thought that I will have to find a Gnome 
replacement for Krusader (there is one -- gnome-commander), but 
I found myself pretty happy with default nautilus, so I stick 
with it (plus a lot of command line commands in gnome-terminal).

Best,

Matej
