This might be a valid goal but doesn't work very often. Many, many
applications are not Gnome-aware and it's impossible for them to open
a file on a network drive, for example.
You have to copy the thing to a local drive with the file manager and
open the thing there. Alternatively, you can mount network shares in
the file system, but this requires touching the command line yet again.
I'd be glad hearing about a file manager actually mounting drives
instead of using voodoo, like Nautilus does.
