Comment 10 for bug 386150

David, I like your suggestion of simplifying the default configuration. I think we have to be extremely careful of what we actually change, as it can have a tremendous impact on file browser's usability (and, as a result, on how Ubuntu is perceived).

My call would be to run a series of user tests with various configurations and see which areas could be problematic.

I strongly agree though that nautilus needs to be simpler and deal with screen space better.
