Sorry, but I disagree. Let's agree to disagree. :)

I would love to see some tests on this too.

I am not sure what the Nautilus settings perceives as "default" though. For
example, my husband --having spent $5000 on photo equipment since last
year-- he now uses a OSX and uses Finder to catalog his (too many) pictures.
He doesn't want to have a default setting for all windows, because for his
images folders he wants to have full 128x128 thumbnails while use normal
32x32 icons for the rest of the folders. AFAIK, this is not even settable on
Nautilus -- it will just preview whatever you have told it to preview. So if
the default on nautilus is "icon view at 75% with previews On", that's the
last thing I want to see on a file selector. Now, that wouldl look weird, to
say the least.
