      Well, I didn't mean to integrate them into core, but exactly in the disk and file managers.

        The shell does not technically rely on GTK at all as it uses the clutter based shell toolkit aka st, so what actually needs porting are all the userland applications. There is already a nearly done port of nautilus afaik.

        And Gnome 4 will likely be a major technical update to the whole shell infrastructure to get away from the still quite monolithic structure.

          Snapshot browser. Not Sure if the previous work from Sun could be used or if Nautilus has changed too much since then.

            Exactly, it is perfectly streamlined and not simplistic at all.
            Look at The Standard Desktop file selection dialog. It is perfectly streamlined to The Standard Desktop users' expectation for 20 years. Also to how these users expect drop-down list to be drawn (when there are so many items that they won't fit the screen in current window position, opening it for the first time produces that unique "drop-down list contains multiple empty items" behaviour, only when you start scrolling over it items are rendered from the beginning of drop-down list area).

            Though I think I should watch my language. Last time I used satire towards The Standard Desktop or its cheerleaders, my satirical post in "Debian Qt maintainers step down" thread was deleted without notice. It seems their fragile egos have to be protected by moderators. So mind your words people!

              I can see that happening. GNOME Disks isn't something most end users would use anyway, so it won't bother them.

                LOL. I HIGHLY doubt that porting will take only 6 months.

                  GNOME Shell only uses a few utilities that aren't (yet) worth re-implementing like GtkIconTheme. Gtk3 at least has it's own main loop that is wholly incompatible with Clutter's.

                  TL;DR Gtk4 does not mean GNOME4, it just means Gtk4.
