I do believe what Desktop Environment is being used is a factor here.

Personally, using KDE, it's a big thumbs up for Dolphin.

Then again Konqueror -'Super User Mode' has its place under KDE, in my opinion.

Lots of permutations by jingo...

Thunar is too heavyweight for my liking, but I use it the most anyway.

And it deserves a vote because of the bad-ass viking on the about screen. That's the only reason I prefer it over pcmanfm.

Also, should Andromeda be added to the poll? I like its style, if it had more customisation options it would be my top pick. I'm sure someone out there likes it more than the other file managers.

Nautilus followed by GNOME Commander. In certain instances GNOME Commander is better.

Cool And the winner again... Vim!

I chose Thunar, and Dolphin is something I use a lot too - it just depends on whether I'm using Xfce or KDE for the most part, and Midnight Commander... well it's good to see that it's actually listed - as it should be

But really, Vim, vi, cp, cpio, dd, rsync, and mv are the ones I really use the most LOL!

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,

.

Double Commander

I'd propose Double Commander (doublecmd), it's still new and not fully finished, but it's a nice and functional multiplatform Total Commander clone...

It's either Thunar or PCManFM for me, but i choose Thunar because custom right click menu wins.

I think Doublecmd should be in this list, because once you try it, nothing ese really works for you
