Re: Gnome 2.6: What were you thinking?

Hi Andrew, I've read the article before.  I understand that the
proponents of spatial mode claim that it's a very different model.

That's fine.  I don't see what that has to do with what I said. 

What, exactly, is the difference between spatial and browser except:

1.  Spatial lacks toolbars/side panel, and has an extra button on the
    lower left.

2.  Spatial opens up new windows for each folder, whose location and
    size it remembers.

I'm not seeking flame bait... I just really don't know what else is
functionally different.

I do understand that many people believe these functional differences
lead to a very different navigational metaphor... but functionally, how
else are they different than above?
