Depends... Since you can't please everybody and people may want
to do things "in the opposite way" (so to say), options aren't bad, but
actually required.

The old way allowed me to VERY easily switch / jump to different folders.
With the old way, there was just the "new window delay penalty" once.
Once a window was open, all was good and quick.

Yes, with the current implementatoion, I'm certainly going to disable it. The
old way really was better.

I guess, I don't know what was spatial then ;) All I can say, is that
I liked the
old behaviour better. And also the way Explorer XP handles the "new window
for every folder" option. For me, the way Nautilus behaves now (with this
option) doesn't make sense at all. I really do not need to see this "!

folder 8923 times, just because I've passed through this folder 8923 times.
That is nonesense, as far as I'm concerned.
