The most important thing to look after the performance is Usability
factor. And Nautilus/Gnome seriously misses both.
Its slow, and it has many usability themes missing. So, maybe, what we
discussed, are in pipelines. You can put that in bugzilla for what u
want from nautilus/Gnome.
Before implementing these features, Nautilus developers have to go over
many things: like
* Not all users are Text writes.. some are image editors, some are
programmers, some do edit movies, some for fun and some for none but all
So, nautilus/Gnome developers have to find some way to give maximum
usability to these diverse users. The users mainly playing with
multimedia can enable thumbnails in their fileChooser dialog.
