    It's in Arch gnome-unstable repo, gave its Wayland session a quick try: Cursor stutter, regular vsync jitter spikes, had one session crash.
    Don't need this.

    Well, kinda agree with Linus T. : each single Linux desktop currently has big issues / drawbacks that the others may not have. But all of them are pretty cool and usable...
    Choosing which one to use has made me busy for 2+ decades, which, IMHO, is a huge waste of time, but, maybe that's just me.
    Anyway. They've now reached again a certain level of quality ! (but, yeah, it's crazy when you think about it, for each subject there's something apparently essential that is not correctly implemented... For instance, only the current or next versions of these DEs properly sync the display ; for instance I need kwin_lowlatency to get a proper result on www.vsynctester.com ; Cinnamon almost gets it right but not yet, and maybe the current Gnome ? gonna try ASAP. That was not the case in the former version).

    BTW, I'm surprised about the criticisms against Dolphin. IMHO that's a brilliant piece of software : very fast to display tons of file, minimalistic by default but highly customizable, it does cool stuff like previewing the content of directories (inside the directories icons), splitting views, bookmarking searches, remembering views if necessary, you can pause etc. copy operations (ok that's kio).
    Yes, there is a desktop war, among the desktop developers, not among the users. It's almost time for Gnome 4 and the story will be the same as that we had between Gnome 2 and Gnome 3.
    The developers insists to code something complicated (I sometime wander: are they all good programmers?) and useless. Why? I think they do not need to sell anything to anyone, so keep simple, beautiful and bug-free.

    Also if I'm not mistaken (??) you cannot edit the location field (?).
    Ctrl + L should allow you to edit it, if I am not mistaken.

    Well, as of the previous version of Gnome / Ubuntu, it was pretty difficult to choose a file. I think there was just a tiny preview for the selected file. KDE filepicker for instance offers thumbnails (incl. directories thumbnails). Also if I'm not mistaken (??) you cannot edit the location field (?). But the Gnome filepicker has a properly working "recent" location by default. (that kinda has to be added manually / tweaked under KDE, or at least it was the case until recently). Yet another example of several implementations of the same kind of components, with pros & cons on both sides that have no real justifications. (all features could be implemented on one)

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. Been using Ubuntu 19.04 for a few months.

    It seems there are no previews. Btw. what current distribution will get the latest Gnome? I want to try it.

(Honorable mention are some like Sunflower) - The worst of any OS are in order Finder (Mac), Dolphin (Plasma) and Explorer (Windows). Far too many needless options. I wouldn't be surprised to see "compress files into self extracting mp4 sildeshow and send to one of your contacts over ham radio" In Dolphin.
    See above. Gnome lacks basic features such as thumbnail support in its filepicker.

    If so then there's Nautilus?
    There is no proper way to select files in gnome.

    Filepicker in Gnome.


    Filepicker in windows

    Filepicker in KDE

    Then I wonder why their launcher is against this philosophy?
