Konqueror frigging rules... check out KIO-locate http://www.kde-apps.org/content/pre2/17201-2.png or KIO-pod. Browse a remote machine via ssh.. simply amazing stuff. Krusader and MC are OK but I never liked the MC style window.

Nifty. Reminds me of SHIO-locate somehow.

Anyway - what I was posting about was that josiah's xfe is a different thing from xfce. I think he's talking a X File Explorer, which is a FOX app. Needs some radical work on the icons, but it's nicely functional and, indeed, doesn't tie you to any damn desktop. I prefer dual panes, command lines, and rox weirdness to tree-panes but it's a good one of that type. Only other of that type worth mentioning is Endeavour.

(I can't stand xfce's file manager.)

Midnight Commander

Too bad "Total Commander" doesn't run quite right via WINE, or I'd suggest THAT (Been using that on Windows forever...)

I believe that 2-panel file managers and others should have different polls. Thhese are totally different types.

What about EmelFM / EmelFM2?

[EDIT]
Didn't see your post there gunnix (I must be blind, I know), anyway I agree, EmelFM's cool.

Konqueror all the way. Fast, functional, and doubles as a web browser.

I believe the days of Konqueror as the favourite file manager are passe.

Konqueror as graphic manager and a combination of

cd, ls, mv, cp, scp, ...

for textbased file management

I think this poll depends a lot on the Desktop someones using. Most Gnome Users probably will vote for Nautilus and most KDE Users (like me ) will vote for Konqui.

I don't use either of those desktops, and like you, I like working with files from the command line.. But if I want something more graphical, emelfm2 or mc work well and are both quite powerful.
