Description Edwind Richzendy Contreras Soto 2009-04-29 10:40:28 EDT
Description of problem:

Most users who use this option to put fedora facilitate navigation and to nautilus looks more like a real file browser, also for users who migrate from  windows this presentation of the nautilus is more familiar.

Expected results:
I hope that nautilus in fedora 11 and future versions come with this option set by default

Additional info:

Open Nautilus, click in "Edit" / Preferences  in a "behavior" tab, set on "Always open in Browser Windows" option

This is neverending fight between the two groups, one living comfortable with a spatial mode and the others fighting for browser mode by default.

Fedora is trying to be as close to upstream as possible, including default preferences.

I suggest you to start a discussion on fedora-desktop-list@redhat.com or nautilus-list@gnome.org and when you come with a mutual agreement, please reopen this bug.

For F11, it was already too late for a change at the date of this request was opened.
