    Have any of you noticed anything about the names of the two file-managers - Nautilus and Nemo (a fork of Nautilus)?

    Hint: Think about literature/books

    Second hint: The number 20,000

    In 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, the captain of the Nautilus is named Nemo. Hmm, I wonder if that played any part in naming the forked file-manager Nemo.

    Well, if you think so too, then we are both right - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemo_(file_manager)#History

    If not, then I am the only one that was right. :D

    The two projects should be merged and named "Verne". :p
    Haider92 and Yesyesloud like this.
