That's certainly true. Since that time they seem to almost delight in
arbitrarily removing features and functionality. Removing the ability
to have two panes open in Nautilus seemed like the most user unfriendly
thing you could do to a file manager. I can't remember ever seeing any
reason of why it was done, other than that's what the developers
decided. I used Nemo for awhile but for some reason never felt that
comfortable with it. I've been using Double Commander for quite awhile
now and don't miss Nautilus at all anymore.
