Purely for info, Caja also has split view.

I keep coming back to the Midnight Commander. I often use the Windows Commander via wine, but being a Windows app I don't think it counts .

I voted Dolphin, simply because I use it the most, MC would be very close I use it a lot.

best is yet to come

My favorite file manager, because of its configuration and its ability to preview graphical files, is Path Finder.

It is not OpenSource. It is not available for Linux (it is a Mac Finder replacement). But if anyone out there is thinking of developing a good file manager for Linux, please borrow someone's mac and have a look at this. Worth cloning.

(While you are at it clone BBE please. Thanks.)

EagleMode. When I do use a file manager, this has one that allows you to look at the contents of many files without having to actually open them. I usually use CLI for most things, but I've found this program to be the most efficient for cruising around the filesystem. It's a graphical zoom interface, which it pretty unique if you haven't used one before.

My file manager of choice is cli! I decided long ago that graphical file managers are simply too slow and clumsy for me. They drive me up the wall. I don't even have one installed on Crux or LFS. Debian/LXDE includes one, I believe, but I never use it.

With half a dozen two-letter commands, I can do anything I want in a flash.

I tried many and ended up with PCManFM. Lightweight with best functionality.

Nothing more to add - apart from the fact that it's quick as hell.

That interesting, ondoho - I've never experienced that with PCManFM on LXDE or Gnome on Arch. What DE's / distros does it hang on for you ?

I use the Gentoo file manager (which is not affiliated with the Gentoo Linux distribution).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentoo_%28file_manager%29

I is a GUI GTK-based file manager inspired in the Amiga filemanager and also in Norton Commander file manager.

Please, add it to the poll.
