Yes ! my sentiments exactly.

Is it really ok for users to expect that ?

Will they continue expecting that when they install there very own
free GNU/Linux system with a GNOME desktop and toolkit ?

I think that everyone on this thread has great ideas about
usability and everything... lets all get together and make
GTK+'s file chooser the most kickass file chooser ever !

I can see it now... windows users will demand that applications
be ported to GTK+ just so they can use the kickass file chooser...
and then who knows ?
