How does Linux store thumbnails ?
I recently noticed that KDE creates a .diretory file to probably store info about thumbnails and other stuff and Gnome does store thumbnails in a centralised directory.
Can anyone elaborate this difference in more detail and compare the benefits and drawbacks of each approach?
