Nautilus in Gnome 2 was, IS, the best file manager in all of computerdom. Imho, Nautilus and x2 from Windows were tied in first place. Two panes, extra tabs for each, a tree view, lots of flexibility in both.

So, since Nautilus has had its throat cut for for Gnome3, Caja has taken over that top spot.

Wow... That's a feature I use extensively. What a terrible decision. I always thought Nautilus was good the times that I used it, but talk about a regression in design. I even use dual pane on my android phone (GhostCommander).

>In my opinion, it is pcmanfm. It really works, has not too much packages, and can even smbfs.

As a lot of other users I am disappointed in the direction that Nautilus is going. The double pane option was something I used often. If Dolphin is the file manager of the year, maybee the Nautilus developers need to have a look at why Dolphin got almost 60% more votes than Nautilus and re-think their strategy going forward.
