Re: Lets take the worst of windows and make it the unchangeable defaultof linux

Not really having paid much attention to:


(but please look there if you want to see more data), I think spatial
mode makes two assumptions:

 - Navigation can be kept shallow for non-expert users
 - Expert users will make frequent use of Control-L


Say I click my way to a file within some directory which is a long way down a path. If I try to click with only a few directories down a path, I have no way of knowing the actual path to the file.

All I get is a lot of open windows and know one of them was where the file originally was.

Getting a window for every click is bad enough. Why the new window cannot at least give you a clue as to where it came from, looking at the window with the file you want.

CTL-L is not any more of a convienience than a terminal shell or using the run dialog box.

Spacial mode is basically useless and does not really let one know where the file is and needlessly clutters up the desktop.
