[gr] I'm using XFce instead of Gnome and I'm trying to keep away from
bloatware, which Nautilus is, I'm told. I could always use it, it's got
some cool stuff and fills the bill for me. It's even got stuff Explorer
doesn't do, like previewing JPEGs, for example. And yes, I know it's ok
to want one and that it isn't sacrilegious. I was kidding.

[gr] Haven't got KDE installed. I usually use XFce or IceWM.
