Thanks for the tip digigold!
I've tried PCmanFM before, and my issue with it was the gui mostly, which seems to be more into my liking here. Time will tell how it turns out, but looking good so far.

MC is my choice.
Unthinkable to have a system without it.

Used to like Nautilus, but I won't use G3 and I don't like the way it works in KDE, so my new preference is Dolphin.

No option for something like "core utils" or "cli"?

I really like seeing these polls each year, it's such a great resource for products I've not heard of and it means I don't have to persist with something I've been so unhappy with lately! SpaceFM looks really promising.

Wish I could choose a first and second.

Voted for Dolphin, but I could have just as well voted for Midnight Commander. Both are outstanding products that I frequently use. Since I stick to KDE as a desktop environment, Dolphin is a given. If the distribution does not have Midnight Commander as part of it's default install, it gets installed.

I just installed Krusader since I've never heard of it before...

Midnight Commander integrated into KDE with added features... This looks really nice.

I probably would of voted for PCManFM if it where not for that bug earlier in the year when it said files where 50 times bigger than they where.

Go Dolphin!!!

best file man

PCManFM, except that it doesn't have a Connect To Server option like Nautilus. I like the drag n drop to the command line.
