Nautilus is the official file manager for the GNOME desktop. The name is a play on words, evoking the shell of a nautilus to represent an operating system shell. Nautilus replaced Midnight Commander in GNOME 1.4 and was the default from version 2.0 onwards.

You know - you get those optical illusion pictures with hidden images in them that you have to spot, only sometimes they are not so obvious, and it takes a while for the penny to drop. Well its a bit like that, when you see and understand, you think to yourself, "Why the heck couldn't I see that" . Nautilus, there I was using it all the time from the first boot up of the first install . Mind you there is still the matter of what else it does and how......
okay off to get my coat .
