Third. I don't actually use it, but I think it should be added on the basis that I haven't even heard of half of these, yet I hear about PCMan all the time.

I think the Dolphin file manager (which will be the default file manager for KDE4) was relevant in 2007. Although I have not tested it extensively, it seems abundantly stable for common use.

There doesn't appear to have been a PCMan release since 2006.
