i agree; i use bash (on urxvt) more and more often. it gets better the more you start understanding the finer settings. tab completion, mostly.

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

Agree on this, CLI works best. Graphical file managers works best to kill the time. LOL.

I can name something that graphical file managers offer that CLIs don't:

thumbnail images for video files.

Mate nautilus

Not that I ever liked nautilus but isn't this standard on Mate which alot of people use?
How come it wasn't nominated. Maybe everyone dislikes it as much as I do?

pcmanfm is fine for me.

Caja (a fork of Nautilus) is the default for MATE.

Highly likely that Ranger will be my choice next year. It's improved a lot since I tried it a couple of years ago and didn't like it.
