Thanks for the head's up. I rarely use a file manager, and when I do it tends to be PCmanFM. Just took SpaceFM for a quick test drive and it looks pretty nice. Lightweight, featureful, and I don't have to import an entire DE's worth of dependencies just to use it. Suspect it will end up replacing PCmanFM on my daily driver.

Worker. With Geany, it's the first software I install on top of Slackware.

Thumbs up Midnight Commander

In 1998 I left Microsoft gloom. The Midnight Commander has helped me to understand the linux system. I've never been disappointed by the Midnight Commander!

This was a bit tough. I had to pick Dolphin 'cuz it's the "go to guy" but for a few operations Krusader is just indispensable to me.

+1 on SpaceFM. Took it for a test drive and liked what I saw. Not as much as Enlightenment's bundled file manager, but enough to replace PCmanFM for those occasions when I want something different. Deserves the vote!

Midnight Commander 4.8.x. Still evolving slowly but surely. Better than ever.
