I like this idea.<br>
However, even if Nemo doesn't become the new default file manager,
it would be good that someone takes care of an official package for
Ubuntu and adapts the following points :<br>
- Remove Cinnamon dependency<br>
- Add patches for total integration in Unity and Ubuntu One<br>
More generally, Nautilus lack of functionalities and customization
is not the only problem : all Gnome 3 applications are going to take
the same look, ie no more global menu (only one entry which is the
main title), all options are put on a button on top right, like
So no possible to use fine in Unity with global menu, Hud and no
coherence with other programs : user experience is broken.<br>
It makes Ubuntu devs to work at each release to re-adapt Gnome
applications to Ubuntu theme :<br>

<pre wrap="">Hey guys,
there are many people unhappy with the direction Nautilus is heading.
However I understand that with the switch to Qt/Mir there is no manpower
currently to develop a own filebrowser.
I wonder, however, why it is not possible to switch the default
filebrowser in Ubuntu via the GUI.
For example, Nemo (the cinnamon fork of Nautilus 3.4), can be used as a
drop in replacement for Nautilus by setting a symbolic link
from /usr/bin/nautilus to /usr/bin/nemo. I wonder why there is no option
in the settings, or a at least a package that does this for me?
So my questions are: Are there any plans to switch the default browser?
Who should I talk to to implement such a feature (switching the default
