You can configure your desktop in various ways and by using different menu items under the Preferences menu. For a comprehensive icon view of preference items, look under the System menu to find many different tools. Nautilus, the GNOME file browser, was originally developed by Eazel (which ceased operations shortly before summer 2001). The Nautilus shell is used for the Ubuntu desktop as a file browser and desktop utility.

The Nautilus main window, shown in Figure 6.4, is a hierarchy of sub-directories and files in a home directory.
