MC 4.8 is a massive improvement over 4.7. It includes two cool 256-color themes and follows freedesktop.org conventions: for example, its config files now go in ~/.config/mc. It also (finally) has UTF-8 support.

It definitely has my vote.

If only they'd fix the SSL certificate on the project homepage.

+1 for thunar, even if its not the best file manager, still much better than KDE's bloated stuff.. To remedy to Thunar's simplicity, I use core-utils and CLI as much as possible..

Thanks for the info - I'm going to upgrade it on my systems.

Hi,

Nautilus since I use it the most.

Kind regards,

Eric

Rodent [1] is missing from the list.
[1] http://xffm.org/

'EmelFM/EmelFM2' is misspelled: should read 'emelFM/emelFM2'

Are there reasons to keep the awkward 'emelFM/emelFM2' choice? Many programmes have ancestors, but you seem to point them only for emel. For example, I didn't see a 'Gnome 2/Gnome 3' choice in DE.

Personally I find useful Thunar, emelFM2 and Rodent in different settings, but voted for emel.

PCmanfm wins my vote because it has hal and dbus support and minimal system requirements (ram, cpu and such).

Thanks for the link. I didn't know Rodent before. It looks interesting.

Depends which environment I'm using at the time, such as Gnome2 - Nautilas, KDE4 - Dolphin, Xfce4 - Xfm...

My choice also. Doubly so since I already use KDE, and it's already installed, no point in learning another.
