    Also there are features that (only) I probably need and/or know how to use or that they exist, i.e. one can add metadata to a video file and the most important parts of it will be shown inline along with the file name but in a lighter (gray) color:

      Kind of like in most OS's/DE's, not just macOS. Deepin also works like that, AmigaOS 4 also works like that, Ubuntu Touch also works like that, Haiku also works like that, KDE doesn't but the file picker does look and feel like Dolphin with quite a few options from Dolphin to choose from, etc.

        Compiling hundreds of crates n times is.

          Is the tilde in you user name intended?

            I don't see anything using anything close to hundreds of crates in GNOME. So I don't see the relevance.

              Indeed. It doesn't solve all the paper cuts, but thankfully nemo (from Mint/Cinnamon) is still pretty much a drop in replacement for nautilus. Delete gvfs, use kernel cifs/nfs drivers, and tune nemo's preview handling, and I don't find it offensive.

                Then buy a pair of glasses. Shortwave and Podcasts, to name two I use, each download ~280 crates.

                  No need to be rude. I was referring to the direct dependencies. It looks like you are talking about indirect dependencies as well. What is the compilation time on those for you?

                    To be fair, XFCE's Thunar is even slower than Nautilus when doing a large number of I/O operations. Nautilus is especially bad at rendering previews because it keeps changing the size of the viewport, forcing the window to scroll randomly, making it hard to select anything before it's 100% done.

                      Double compilation time (well not quite, if you compare to C++ it's about the same really) for much better security and potentially runtime performance? Yes, sign me up please.
