    Nice! Any improvements to the truly-awful-gtk-file-picker are always welcome!

    Does anyone have a screenshot?

      gnome 3 will die

      pulse audio as part of gnome 3? FAIL!
      Pulse audio sucks big time. Gnome sucks just because of that.

      Don't get me wrong i have no problems with previous gnomes, in fact ti like them and use one now, but pulseaudio as part of dependency - it's horrible.

      no matter how good it may seems, Gnome 3 is beta quality.

        Look. It's not like pulseaudio is set in stone. Yes it started out quite rocky, yes it might still be rocky for some people. But let's not get carried away -- if you add a dependency, you can always remove it (open source, remember!), and if pulseaudio is broken you can always fix it.

        P.s.: My cellphone uses pulseaudio. I've had it for more than a year and never had any problems.

          Don't worry, nothing gets better in Gnome with time.
          The new file chooser must be dumber and more awkward that old one.

          Peoples, switch to KDE!
          Really KDE has plenty of bugs, but unlike Gnome, it has mentally healthy management, and while former can be easily fixed, later is pretty much impossible to fix.

            Sigh. Whenever "GNOME" or "KDE" is mentioned trolls attack the comment section. In fact I have been ignoring comments on these articles recently and unless the situation changes will probably continue to do so.

            I really don't understand these wars. They are both free software and I want both of them to exist.

            Just wanted to say that.

              Human beings are genetically prone to picking sides and fervently attacking everything else. That's why we get "religious" about sports teams and, home towns/states/countries, universities, colors, editors, operating systems, gaming consoles, FPS brands, etc. etc. Old tribal/pack behavior that kept us alive thousands and thousands of years ago hasn't been "optimized out" of our DNA yet.

                I love desktop environment wars. No, really. Most of the time they are more entertaining than everything else, especially when it comes down to something like GTK+ or PulseAudio

                  STFU trolls...

                    PulseAudio is the best thing to happen to linux audio since JACK. It's awesome.

                      OSX Lion is better than both GNOME 3 and KDE 4.6

                      Discuss.

                        In all seriousness...

                        I have gone back and forth between GNOME, KDE, and Enlightenment over the past 13 years I have used Linux. GNOME3 has some baking to do, IMHO. But that is why we have options.

                          I think gnome 3 is great, and it is consistently improving. I don't think it deserves the hate its been getting.

                            Obviously you don't know what you are talking about or you are just a
                            terrible, dirty and hungry troll. There are a lot of things to be said
                            about KDE, but its file pickers have always been praised for their
                            excellence. In fact, it is one of the only reasons I use KDE, since the
                            DE on the whole it's rather sucky to say the least.

                            But I happen to work with a great number of files and file types, including
                            text documents, pictures, media archives, proprietary document binary
                            formats and old console ROMS. From time to time I may even have dozens
                            of them in a single directory, so I need a file picker that helps me navigate
                            comfortably and find my way through the file system to get the job done.
                            After reading many reviews and trying different solutions I came to the
                            conclusion that KDE's file picker offers a unique blend of intuitiveness, easy
                            of use and performance, as well as sporting an impressive feature set.

                            If only I could use KDE's file picker in Gnome 3 or Windows Vista I would
                            be a happy man.
