Do you mean are they removing Nautilus, as I haven't heard anything to suggest they are. – Adam Nov 8 '10 at 17:09
srsly? they dumped root login and you want to know if they are dumping file manager for non-root? sorry, it makes my head hurt. i would like to know how you thought that might be happening – RobotHumans Nov 8 '10 at 18:19
Well it wasn't a suggestion by any means. I ask because using Unity shows that there is definitely a shift away from a standard file manager. Well "root" login could be an administrator/owner account. For plain user accounts, having another file manager seems superfluous. – davbren Nov 8 '10 at 19:38
Oh buddy you seriosly don't want to login with the root account... and one thing is a File Manager and another completely different things is the Desktop Interface, that somehow you mixed up. – Uri Herrera Nov 28 '11 at 15:44
@UriHerrera I know I don't want to login with the root account. but it seems as though nautilus is becoming less and less relevent. I really wouldn't be surprised if its not there in 13.04. – davbren Dec 1 '11 at 15:10

Not sure where the question came from, but no. Nautilus remains the file manager for GNOME, and Ubuntu.
