Still, Nautilus. Although I'm not happy about the removal of extra pane (split window) feature in 3.6, and very disappointed about the rationale given.

Are zsh or bash valid? Or at least a generic "shell" option?

Nautilus is still the best although the view of icons, list, compact.
should be given an icon somewhere instead of being on the view menu.

I voted for Midnight Commander, but I use PCManFM a lot. I'm surprised that SpaceFM isn't on this list. I discovered it in ArchBang and I'm impressed.

Dunno why I picked Dolphin this year...

I just seem to be using it more than Thunar - but never as much as Bash

SpaceFM - Few dependencies and VERY configurable with quite a few 3rd party plugins.

Agree with Keith above.

By far the best fm that appeared in 2012. The work done is simply awesome. Please add to the list.

Bash is a shell NOT a file manager.

SpaceFM is my first choice. If I must use what is on the list. Then Rox-Filer.
