Yet another vote for keeping the location bar and removing the sidebar
by default.

And personally I think, nautilus looks somewhat, well, thick.

I'm running a w2k box, next to my linux box, win32 explorer provides a
poor but more viable/useful content; rather than a beautiful look.
Nautilus just rocks, but please, could we have, *thinner* lines (smaller
toolbar [icons, buttons]/location bar) overall the application? 

Agree here.  There seems to be much space wasted by rather 'thick' 
toolbars.  The icon size seems OK to me but there is just so much 
'padding' around the icons that the toolbars are inevitably thick.

And what I wonder is, the nice *thin* look idea would apply to whole
GNOME desktop and applications being developed/ported with this idea in
mind. The perfect look, usability and success of GNOME applications like
Evolution and Galeon doesn't seem to be a surprise.

Both Galeon and Evolution provide a thin, simple UI with elegant
toolbars; really useful/verbose enough status bars on most dialog-boxes
saving a similar, GNOMish look'n'feel.

Again, nautilus2 is; very close to perfect, in most cases. It's first
thing a first-time GNOMEr faces with. As people need more, they start
using Galeon, Evolution, AbiWord, Gnumeric alikes, obviously they will
feel the difference that, nautilus2 has useless things which just waste
space on the screen, IMHO.

Just my 2.5 cents,
