ROX for me as well :)

As with Kwrite as an editor, I'm still stuck on Konqueror, but I admit I haven't even tried many of the ones on the poll, so there's very likely a good replacement for trusty Konq on the desktop -- I just need to get around to finding it.

Outside X, I use mc.

Being a CLI user mostly, I prefer Midnight Commander.

Thunar is the best in the list but I've been using PCManFM on the LXDE based workstations and it's also come a long way in short period of time so going to give it the vote this year.

Otherwise, man, oh man, I wish Gnome would pull Thunar in and ditch the lameness that is Nautilus. In the meantime lets hope that the "Thunar Threat" at least gives the Nautilus dev heads a much needed kick in the pants.

PCmanfm with multiple tabs yet does not provide history save.
Nautilus got multitab after 2.24 version.
I have not come across file manager that provides multiple tab with all control using keyboard & opening file types with relevant application ?

I normally use the terminal, but when i want simplify some tasks I use nautilus.

Thunar is improving in leaps and bounds. My vote goes there. MC in the terminal.

Dolphin is neat so my vote is there (My preferred one is MC though)

Usually do most of my file management from the CLI (ls, cp, mv, rm, etc.), but I do like Midnight Commander. And I do sometimes use Nautilus because drag-and-drop is nice at times.

Since Dolphin is a little bug yet,
my vote goes to the good 'n old konqueror.

sycamorex 01-13-2010 06:52 AM

I wish I could vote for thunar. Unfortunately my vote goes to konqueror again.
Dolphin crashes too much. MC hangs with ftp sessions. Thunar lacks functionality that konqueror has.
There's still krusader, but I haven't got used to it (yet!).

it just works:)

I like Dolphin, It looks nice, but it is crashing frequently. So again my vote to "konqueror".
