Yes, but this is the same (imo) error that happened when Konqueror was
introduced with the "simplified" file browser interface. That's fine when
you're making a new installation, but you should _never_ be "dumbing down"
the interface for people who've already become used to the more complex
interface. It just angers people like Steve.

Probably. Strigi sounds like a nightmare, but changing the way long-time
users use something as basic as a file manager at the same time just adds
to frustration levels.
