Nautilus resurfaces from Eazel wreckage
File mangler breathes again
It's a terrible thought, but Eazel's demise may prove to be the best thing ever to happen to Nautilus, the software libre file manager.
Eazel went titsup.tar.gz in March, having burned through $13 million trying to make a business of selling services around Nautilus.
But the GPL software lives on. A new release 1.04 issued yesterday includes both real and cosmetic fixes, and doesn't keep trying to force the now-defunct Eazel services down the user's throats. So it's leaner for that.
It's Friday, and we feel an apt-get coming along... ®
