File Manager of the Year

A new poll last year, which ended up being a close race.

Voted for that as well. The 1.7 beta versions are really awesome.

I prefer explorer type interfaces over the twin panel so I chose Xfe. Xfe along with blackbox or fluxbox make all the DE I need

Konqueror. Simply the best, and has been for a long time.

xffm from svn is a great file manager. I love it. It is light and has a number of very useful plugins.

Nautilus. Don't laugh!

Nautilus has come so far in the last year. Many of the pugins and extra scripts which are now available (easily installable on my distro, too) make doing things like mounting isos or changing audio formats as easy as right-clicking. Although no one else seems to like spatial, it keeps my desktop uncluttered and remembers where I'm at.

You can't beat KIO Slaves in Konqueror. Audio CDs, IPod support, Digital camera support, all right in your file manager. Simply wonderful!

I vote for nautilus.
I think konqueror is the most powerful, but I was sophisticated.
Most of the time I use nautilus

I like the fact that Konqueror supports sftp. I got very fed up of transferring files between work and home on the command line...
