Since the term " of choice " was said.

Voted rox-filer since I mostly use it. Without thinking .
Spacefm when I wish to get fancy.
MC when not logged into a gui desktop.

Ranger, mc, and vifm work better when you have a lot of random files in one directory that you need to move to other directories. Tag them individually, then do one move operation.

From the comments, it sounds like most people just prefer what's included with their DE. I'd be curious to see how results of this poll and the results of the DE poll match up.

Just tried it out and it looks really nice. I am particularly pleased with the simplicity of how to add custom scripts.
Is there any way to make them available in the top level of the context menu (as opposed to subentries of the scripts menu entry)?
A keyboard shortcut would also work...

I'm not sure. I use it as-is and don't add any scripting. I know some people do though.

It rules compared to a file manager that doesn't even have the option to "move to" or "copy to" a file or directory.

Like the last time I used the Insight "file manager" on TrueOS.
