Paul's point is that "linux" is just a kernel. *Debian GNU/Linux* is
a combination of linux (a kernel) and all those apps and libraries you
Your point, before that, still stands (as I mentioned in a different
message): complaining against *linux* isn't helpful because that's
not where the deficiency lies. Instead the deficiency lies in
Nautilus or Konqueror (is GMC still alive?) and the issue should be
taken up with those tools.
