i challenge anyone to use MC for 1 hour, then compare it to any other app "out of the box." MC is so lean with just the right settings from the start for fast file management. it's great.

I like Krusader. I'm used to the two panel interface style. And of course, as a second choice, always Midnight Commander.

I worked hard to get the money to buy myself an iPod.
No doubt others worked hard to get it supported in Konqueror.
They did a great job!

Krusader is a twin-panel file manager.
Handles all the Kio slaves, virtual file systems, ftp, and more, in the manner of the DOS Norton Commander, but on steroids.

I use Kanotix because it installs Krusader out of the box. New version 1.70 is available from the site; will soon be in the Debian repository.

Edit note: See I need to update my profile. Changed from Mandrake over a year ago.

Rox. It's always the first menu addition I make for Fluxbox, and the first icon I add or change to Gnome/KDE.

Thumbs up Konqueror

I use Konqueror, not that I pick it over any others, I just use it because it is there. Not much file management going on here!

I'm surprised at the number of people voting for mc.

If I'm in the cli I find it so much more easier to use the simple file manipulation commands: cp, mv, rm and so on rather than fire up mc.

I hardly use my chosen file manager, only when I'm in X and "can't really be bothered" mode, but IMHO its such an excellent bit of kit I couldn't not vote for it.

Interesting difference between us: I can't stand all the typing, even using tab completion, compared to the near "point & click" that mc gives.

It's a matter of taste.
