Filemanager of choice


Konquorer and Nautilus are great, but what other file managers do you all use?

don't know about the samba on this one, it's a nice twin panel one. there are alot of file managers around, but for # of features my opinion is that nautilus and konqueror are the two that will have the most as far as general use is concerned.

I'm a big fan of rox-filer. It is lightweight, has cool icons and themes, supports a wide variety of thumbnails including video thumnnails--really cool.

xfe is a very lightweight filemanager that works really well & has a lot of different functions such as twin view & the like.

For a relatively light and extremely fast two panel filemanager, try gentoo: http://www.obsession.se/gentoo/
