It is also useful to make gnome more spread to beginners linux user to have, like in kde, the possibility to extract gz, bz2 and so on files just by clicking with the right button

I believe that this feature is either available or planned...  but I am
not sure.

If you install File-Roller, you get that - clicking on a .gz or .bz2 or .zip or .rar file opens a window with the contents, allowing you to drag files out of there, etc... And right clicking on such a file, shows you a menu with "Extract here", "Extract in a subfolder", "Extract to..." and "Add to archive"...

Hmm, good .. i did't knew about File-Roller. Is it for Gnome 2 ? Hope it will be included in distro like Mandrake 9!

And, what about the ability to see the information of more than one file in one unique window ?
This is, in my opinion, the most important thing.
