I have a laptop with 12.04. Its Nautilus has the split panels AND tabs. I
like and use both. Sometimes several tabs in each panel.

If I could still have the "tree" in the left panel I wouldn't suffer too
much, but that one is gone too! Nautilus is almost unusable now. What are
they thinking? I would understand if they hide some features, but remove
them? Why would that be a good thing?

Okay, sound like I'm wining now, but maybe there are reasons for it… :P
