Linux Mint founder calls Nautilus 3.6 a catastrophe

Linux Mint founder and lead developer Clement “Clem” Lefebvre has provided further insight into his team’s decision to create Nemo, a fork of GNOME’s Nautilus file manager, and their plans for the new project. In a new blog post, Lefebvre says that he and his fellow developers chose to fork Nautilus because of the recent controversial design changes in version 3.6 of Nautilus, calling it “a catastrophe” as it “removes features we consider requirements”.
