"After three preview releases, Eazel has finally released
Nautilus 1.0. When we looked at Preview Release 1, it was
essentially a souped-up file manager with excellent customization
features. Version 1.0 extends the functionality of Nautilus and
rounds out the package with a much-improved test-drive of Eazel's
network-based Services. Though not as polished as we'd hoped, the
end result is impressive and offers another exciting look at the
future of the Linux desktop."
"Nautilus's interface remains the same; its two-paned display
features the usual menu choices, File, Edit, Layout, and so on. But
closer inspection reveals how Nautilus makes file identification
easier. Instead of associating a file type with a generic icon,
Nautilus lets you zoom in on files and folders."
"Nautilus displays the contents of a file when possible, saving
you the trouble of launching an app just to identify a file. For
instance, an image file's icon is a thumbnail preview of the image
itself, while a text file's icon displays several lines of text
from the document. In addition, Nautilus features a configurable
zoom level that lets you adjust the amount of detail displayed by
these icons. It also allows you to view files as icons, as a file
list, or, in the case of MP3 audio files, as a playlist with an
embedded miniature MP3 player below it. Nautilus even lets you
preview MP3 files by playing a bit of the file when you hover the
cursor over the icon."
