I suggest you add worker to the list, see here.
It is mature, well maintained, features full, highly configurable - and if it is not included I won't be able to vote on this poll

Worker was removed as it was in the category last year for the duration of the poll and did not get a single vote.

Probably a long shot, but how about vifm. It has gone through a lot of changes in the last few months.

While I wouldn't vote for it, EagleMode is pretty cool. I use Dolphin.

It's not a 'file manager' per se, but I just use ls, rm, cp, mv, ln, etc. for all my filesystem needs.

I only use two of the available choices on a regular basis. Dolphin and Midnight Commander. I use Nautilus, Thunar depending on the system. The vote goes to Midnight Commander, I've been using it the longest. If a system does not have it installed it is one of the first things that happens.

Recently I took the time to learn MC's keybindings. I really like it now.

Dolphin - user-friendly and very configurable (with no Nepomuk/Strigi rubbish)
