[ Thanks to renai43 for this link. ]

"Next week, at LinuxWorld San Jose, the first version of Nautilus will be born kicking and screaming into the world. Eazel, the proud mother, will step away and watch as it's new child takes it's first few steps, spreading in Beta form from it's ftp archives into the world, for Beta testers and reviewers everywhere to delight and marvel at."

"Well, that is unless it causes more Segfaults than Netscape and StarOffice combined, and is more memory hungry than encoding mp3s and listening to the latest SuperJesus album at the same time. In that case I'll install it and leave it sitting in it's cradle until the full release."

"Nautilus includes some features which have not been seen before in graphical user interface (GUI) designs. For instance, it features the ability for a user to operate at a number of different levels, be they expert, intermediate or beginner. It also provides the functionality for a user to zoom in and out of a window, allowing sight-impaired users to see graphics at a much closer view."
