But a lot of people aren't willing to take the performance hit ... swings and roundabouts, and you can't please all the people all the time.

As I said, nothing stopping you from swapping file managers.

I thought Nautilus did the album art as the folder by default nowadays (without the thing I linked to earlier) ?

Coverart Tumbnailer is available from a PPA (up to Ubuntu 12.04) as documented here:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/59036/is-it-possible-to-use-album-art-as-an-icon-for-a-folder-in-nautilus-elementary

Homepage here:
http://projects.flogisoft.com/cover-thumbnailer/

Which contains the source code if you want to try compile it for later versions.

BE AWARE - This will NOT work with Peppermint's default file manager

I can understand that, I suppose that's the real beauty of Linux it's not a one size fits all system, it can be what ever you want it to be or what you can make it

but the point I was trying to make was if you have that bit of extra horse power the hit doesn't have to be all that painful if at all :)

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

As you say, the beauty of Linux is you can mix and match, and there''s usually a distro out there that's pretty close to what you want which can be used as a starting point.

Or you can roll your own from scratch if there isn't :)

Aint freely available/modifiable code a wonderful thing  ;D
