In Windows 7 the Computer area has drives sorted by Type which list the size remaining and a progress bar to represent the size currently in use.

Is there a way to customize Ubuntu 11.04 to do the same? (No previous modifications made)

enter image description here

I want to style the Computer section to look like Windows 7, not use what's already there.

    Never used Windows 7 - can you add a screenshot of what you are talking about?

Open System monitor and click on File system tab you will see all the Drive info there like this:

And when you open any directory under home directory you will see some info on the status bar. like this: enter image description here

Nautilus is entirely free software. You can customize it any way you wish. But to be honest, if you're using the Computer section of Nautilus very frequently, I think you should reexamine the way you work with Ubuntu. I had completely forgotten that it even existed and I believe it'll go away or at least be less accessible in 11.10.
