    Thunar is the default file manager for Xfce desktop, Nautilus is the default file manager for Gnome, at least up to 2.x. One feature *I* really missed when trying out lxde edition of Mint, was samba browsing. I had to “sudo apt-get install gigolo”.

    So could the Linux kernel if Linus Torvalds gets hit on the head and turns into Evil Linus. I don’t lie awake at night worrying about that.
