Nautilus Open Terminal

Fancy desktops such as KDE and Gnome are all very well but if you want to get real work done with Linux then you have to open a terminal window.  The commands available in a terminal window far outstrip those in the GUI both in number and in power.  One of the minor annoyances I have found with my Ubuntu installation has been the awkwardness of opening a terminal window in a particular directory.  If I was going to use a directory often I would usually set up a shortcut to gnome-terminal in it and set up the shortcut's start-up directory appropriately.  Well I recently came across nautilus-open-terminal, an extension to the Nautilus file manager that adds an Open in Terminal option to the right-click menu on directories.
