I meant, like, when killing nautilus, it is fully started in 30-60 secs.
A new nautilus window open like, in an instant. Quite fast in navigating
and all, also. At least in my opinion.

It might be slowish in a dir where you havee > 1000 files and a lot of
subdirectories, as it counts their contents also. But generally I say
it's fast. Only slowness is due to my old box.
