What is the Nautilus file manager? Red hat seems to be pushing it pretty hard. Is it all that great?

Nautilus is 'just' a GUI file manager under Gnome, kind of like surfing your directories using 'My Computer' in Windows.
Under KDE, the Konqueror app does this. Konqueror is also a web browser.
Should be multiple browsers installed: Netscape, Mozilla, Konqueror, yada yada ......
If you like old style stuff, open a xterm window and issue:
mc
This gets you the midnight commander, which is a rough clone of the 'norton commander' from DOS days.

What is the difference between Gnome and Ximian Gnome? As I understand it, Ximian Gnome is a version of Gnome just as Netscape 6.2 is a version of Mozilla. Is that correct?
Also, does Ximian Gnome compare favorably to Gnome and KDE? Is it more user friendly than Gnome/KDE to the novice user?
Thanks,
Reuben.
