Why, because i can explain a behavior from that tool with simply thinking about how it works?

The correct way would be: "You tried something new, found a limitation and filed a bug report or feature request". Would be much more useful than to complain in a thread that is more than 2 years old, has a different topic and will most likely never be seen by one of the developers.

I just learned that Thunar does not support NFS, upon using it and subsequently searching for answers. No thanks to you, but then again, I wasn't looking for your approval.

No, because you took my declaration of the suckage that lies within Thunar a bit personally.

Those things have already been done with respect to Thunar & this thread is not the place to file bug reports. The topic of this thread concerned Thunar & included heavily in this thread is the suck. I claimed that Thunar blows. Is this the difference in topic of which you speak? Makes no sense to me. Moving on. You should too, unless you want to contribute to describing the shortcomings of Thunar, which you haven't done. Your response here has been to imply ignorance on my part, which may or may not be true but is, nonetheless, off-topic.

Pointing out that someone's opinion is based on ignorance is not off-topic. The person learns and is no longer ignorant.
If you knew a little more about GNU-Linux, you would know that you can install a different file manager, if you do not like the default. In other words, it is not necessary to ditch XFCE if you do not like Thunar.

but for someone who actually uses computerS for most of the things they were designed to do this is utterly pathetic.
I use my computer to accomplish many tasks it was designed for. I do not use XFCE, but I am currently using Thunar with Openbox. It works quite well for me, although I am not operating a server.

So it copies the file through the RAM on the local machine (you know about caching?).

I always insult people with an arrogant attitude when they give me useful information. I learn a lot and make many friends that way.

First post on the forum is to complain. Second and third posts are abusive and arrogant. I believe the word commonly used on internet fora for such a person is "troll".
