I've been running Linux for a long time. I'm pretty sure Linus would
answer, "Show us your code!" If you've enough energy to complain,
you've enough to help with the fix. Research, document, debug, lobby, ...

I will go read the bug report now, honest, and thanks. I just had to
mention this first.

Ah, geez, I sooo despise Nautilus.

You've got to be kidding me. That's what you consider a critical
enough bug to work on?!? Aii.

Find another way to do it! You're doing it wrong. This isn't Win*.

As for Mr. McCormick, I don't know. But please remember that not
everyone who uses Linux is a C programmer. This is not 1991 and Linux
users are not all Computer Science graduates. Remember, this is a user
forum, not a developer forum. It seems that there are some people
who think that no-one is entitled to open a bug report unless they
fix the bug themselves. That is not a realistic expectation.
Not everyone can.

I didn't file the bug or even comment on it. What the he** are you
talking about. What makes you think I consider it's critical bug ?

Yes, we can't all be DDs, but we can all run reportbug. We can relate
our experiences, at whatever level of sophistication we may have. I
was a noob once.

However, nautilus failing pointy-clicky stuff? Ptheh. Who frigging
cares? What does nautilus do that {mk|rm}dir, cp, rm, mv, chmod, and
chown can't do?

Bottom line, for Mr. McCormick, you get what you pay for. If it
breaks, you get to keep all the pieces. No DD is your slave, sorry.
However, they'd appreciate your help, I'm sure.

Indignantly: "How many developers does it take to fix a bug?"

You started this. I might start something like this for something I
consider a "showstopper". Nautilus' workings (or not) are hardly in
that realm. Were you actually concerned about this, or just trolling
for replies?

You can add ls, (u)mount, link. gzip and tar to that list ;-)
