Re: [Nautilus-list] Constructive Criticism Revisted

On the whole thread of a more simple sidebar I was wondering will there be any movement to allow network browsing like Lin Neighborhood?

I have never seen any conversation on this but I am a recent reader of this list.  Maybe it has been nixed in the past blah,blah...

Right now, I am part of an engineering group making the move off of Windows for engineering/development and onto Linux.  It would be nice to have that sort of functionality for those users who have always worked the unix command line from a Windows PC workstation.  (Lots of em out there by the way).

Including networking browsing from a sidebar would be nice.

kind of thing around before, but I think it'd be great to have one like
this, where there are multiple roots to the tree view.  being able to
fit more into the view would help too.

I guess it's a bit of a 'show me the code' situation though.

something else I've been wondering: is there some way to make one
sidebar panel appear in the sidebar all the time?  (eg have the tree
view come up all the time)

one other small tree view question... I don't understand why the tree
view remembers what parts of the tree have and haven't been opened (when
a new window is opened).  it's pretty system demanding opening all those
places, and I would have thought only opening the directory which you're
currently in would make more sense.
