nice ^_^
Want to resurrect project "genome" (the original gnome fork) with me?

Serious now. a gnome fork with some of the decisions gnome made
reverted might get popular.
O well, the best thing to do if something like this will ever be done
would probably to go to the ubuntu brainstorm site, look at all the
ideas that have been supplied by the users, go to other forums, blogs,
mockups, mailing lists to ask what should be in and.. make it.

A big issue in gnome is that you can't get rid of nautilus easily.
nautilus does more then just browsing files.. it maintains the entire
desktop (background and icons)... it's quite nested in the gnome stuff
(design flaw? there are probably reasons to say it is and it isn't).
So. installing another file manager won't work the way you did expect
it to work.
