Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I voted for Thunar because it is fast to start and fast to use. It seems to appear on my screen on the k of *click* :-) But of course it has to be useable too and it is. The custom actions are easy to set up and work really well. With a right click I can open images, convert flac to ogg, mount/unmount iso, play or queue music files or playlists into audacious, search, create/extract archives, of course open a terminal, search and replace text in a file, burn iso images, see disk useage and so on...and all this in a speedy and lightweight file manager! I also use and love emelfm2 and if I could have voted twice I'd vote for it as well.
Distribution: ArchLinux / Source Mage GNU Linux (test branch) / openSUSE
Midnight Commander! period.
Thunar is doing it well but I returned to Nautilus for graphical stuff. Do you know what's silly in both of them? There's no undo button if you make a bad mouse move. That's their most evident security risk.
Dolphin and Thunar for me. I haven't used mc enough for it to completely grow on me yet, but eventually it might overtake the others. In the same vein, I might try out worker. Dolphin is my current choice as I am using KDE. Otherwise, it'd be Thunar.
I don't really care for using nautilus or konqueror as a file manager.
as for pcmanfm, well i just spent 1 and a half hours trying to install it. the website says 'simple and easy to use'.
not if getting the thing and all its dependancies installed is anything to go by.
heaven for me would be a *really* simple file manager in gtk1 or 2 (preferably 1), im talking 1 window pane listing the files in that dir. right-click on a file brings up a customizable context menu for you to run your own commands on that file.
anyone know something like this?
