Ubuntu Developers to Drop Nautilus Soon and Replace It with Their Own File Manager

Ubuntu is still using a lot of GNOME applications, including the file manager Nautilus (now Files), but that will change soon enough.

It seems that the way GNOME developers are working on Nautilus is not exactly helping Canonical. Ubuntu developers are unhappy with the some features that have gone missing from the file manager and are discussing making their own. More precisely, they will converge the one already used on the phone and tablet.
