Re: [Nautilus-list] Nautilus Goals

What is flame bait is not the speed issue, it's the HTML issue.  It's
obviously going to cause an argument (everybody has their preferences)
and it's not a productive argument (not being about Nautilus).  Anyway,
there's no use getting irate over any of it.  Why don't we make nice and
move on.


PS - by the way, thanks for the speed comparison.  I for one found it
very interresting.
