[plug] Gnome's annoying Windoze-isms

I run gnome primarily because it is meant to be faster and lighter than
the KDE alternative, while still keeping functionality. But as of 2.24,
I've noticed some cpu-intensive "decoration" creeping in. The biggest
being the thumbnail views, even in list view. An example is 200Gb of
Doctor Who avi's I have on a portable hard drive. When I click on that
directory, it can easily take up to a minute before I can do anything
with the files while all the hundreds of thumbnails load.
List View used to be text only, and that's how I liked it. Now I can't
seem to turn the thumbnails off at all. Does anybody have any
suggestions? Is there a gnome toolbox I don't know about?
