"...Christian: Nautilus 1.0 was recently
released and it was met with mixed emotions. Eazel has been keeping
a low profile in commenting on user response, but what are your
feelings on the feedback up to now?"
"Bart Decrem: Yes, we got our share of flames
on Gnotices last week. But hey, that's how hackers express their
affectionate feelings. To be fair, we also got tons of positive
feedback from people who really love the product. But none of us
here at Eazel had the emotional energy last week to respond to the

proud of the product we've shipped, and we're listening to the
feedback, and we're committed to addressing the concerns we've
heard over the next few releases."

on Gnotices, and on our support list, and on IRC, and we digested
all that feedback and came up with the Top 21 Most Requested
Features and Fixes for Nautilus. Here they are:"
