Apart from Midnight Commander, I like PCMan due to its speed.

Gotta be Rox. So much more than just a mere file manager, yet it doesn't try to be all things to all men.

Nautilus. Great to have tabs at last and it still has better looks and/or functionality over the alternatives.

I am really enjoying using Dolphin of late, but Thunar is my choice on the laptop.
