Re: Gnome 2.6: What were you thinking?

I do like spatial mode for file management and it works great. The only
snag is when you have to drill down many folders to get where you want
and unless you know about using the shift key then things will quickly
become messy for novice users.

My request for changing default behaviour is based on this and also that
from a usability point of view the most commonly used stuff should be
based on the left click.
Simply put, if you opened a new folder in the same window it wouldn't be spatial (which folder does that window represent?). If you want browser style functionality, use the browse mode.

Also, is there any reason why you posted your reply here instead of on gnome-devel-list where it began? If the thread needed to be moved, moving to nautilus-list would have been more appropriate.
