yeah... cd, ls, less, mv, cp, scp, tar, file, gzip, bzip2, bash builtins, etc. (oh looky, another chance to plug vi!) O'Reilly's book about these things isn't called "Unix Power Tools" for nothing.

My vote would have gone for XFM, Xandros File Manager. This application is to many the central awesome app that Xandros innovates. It's easy to use, you can encode your CD directly from it, burn CDs in an easy to use GUI, FTP/SFTP, and everything else you'd normally expect from a file manager.

Thumbs up file manager

Filelight is great for me as I can rapidly locate files and their relative sizes across multiple drives. Cool!

Well, until other GUI file managers incorporate ssh/sftp as nicely as Konqueror does, it will remain at the top of the heap. Krusader does the job, but has to reconnect to the sftp server each time the directory is changed... perhaps a trip to the ol' bug reporting zoo is in order, but it doesn't matter enough to me when Konqueror and Nautilus do the job quite nicely. It may be unfashionable to say "Konqueror is my favorite," but really, how fashionable is it to state in random company that "Debian GNU/Linux is the most important thing for" blah blah blah? I digress. Give me a GUI file manager that does what Konqueror and Nautilus are able to do, without the gargantuan KDE/Gnome dependencies, and I doubt I'll go back. When I'm not in KDE/Gnome, i just use the CLI.
