Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I found a feature request at http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/4496/ but it doesn't seem easy to get a column view with Nautilus while with Mac OS X it's a default feature.

Have I missed something or is this not currently possible?

This is not possible with Nautilus, and as far as I know there are no plans to implement this.
