yeah nautilus itself is still slow, but i run nautilus on a pentium 3 700
with 64meg of ram, and it runs pretty good. nautilus is just now getting
speed ups thrown in, the next 1.0.3 release will include all of these, and
alot of features people are really missing from it. nautilus will only get
quicker as time goes by, and probally even faster once the XRender extension
is used inplace of the the stuff they have now.
