          Sounds confusing. What's wrong with 'recent' = < 24 hours, 'this week' < 7*24 hours, 'this month', 'this year', 'this century'?

              How did they reinvent the wheel? This is literally an article about how, first, the Linux kernel had to add a syscall to expose this information, then Glib had to add a feature for integrating that syscall into the higher-level APIs it provides, and now Nautilus is finally adding a GUI for the Glib API for the kernel syscall.

              The only way this is reinventing the wheel is if you consider GNOME itself to be a reinvention of the wheel KDE built (which it technically is, being a "with blackjack and hookers" response to Qt's license at the time), or if you consider Linux's statx system call to be a reinvention of the wheel Windows built.

                What a great achievement. Windows is superior here, they did it more than 20 years ago...
                Hope linux in 10 years will be polished as Windows 10 now for end user then maybe it will be used more for desktops.

                  Mez' Developed by endlessm and independent developers. Good luck with your “Red Hat controls GNOME” conspiracy theory..

                    You should probably stop trying. You're not kidding anyone.

                    And for Gnome itself:
