I think that's pretty standard in GUI filemasnagers nowadays.

I haven't voted in any of the categories this year, because it's just not interesting to vote for the same thing every time, and I can't honestly vote for what I don't/have never used.

File manager?

Short answer: it depends.

Longer answer: would I open the terminal just to say copy one file? Probably not.

Would I sit there going click, click, click god only knows how many times to copy or delete many files in some file manager? Not a chance.
Would I go to the terminal to, for example, delete all files in a particular directory that have a particular extension, where I don't want to delete other files in that same directory that have a different file extension(s)? You betcha I would!

When I do use a file manager, I just use whatever is already there and that I'm already familiar with. Since I use KDE and Dolphin is the default file manager on my system, that's what I use if I'm not using the terminal/commands from the coreutils package.

Maybe, I wouldn't know. I'm fully content with openSUSE's plasma configuration, so I rarely try out other filemanagers (if at all) .

Thumbs up Try Worker

Worker filemanager looks just right for me; its "weak point" is probably a dated interface but if folks are saying they are happy with coreutils then perhaps this is not a big draw-back? Worker file manager certainly has low overheads (only needs x11 and appropriate external utilities for file viewing etc.) and runs well on my old machine.
I have been using coreutils until now; I'm still exploring the features of Worker but sometimes there it is just so much easier to "see what you are doing". The feature that convinced me to make the change is the button to make a symlink; I have been making absolute symlinks to avoid "losing my way" in my directory tree, although relative symlinks would serve me better. In Worker it is much easier with a few mouse clicks. In some respects it "does things differently" so read the home page.
The version in the Ubuntu repository kept freezing on me (and I couldn't copy the filename to the clipboard) but I have just compiled the latest (December 2021) release on my Suse Leap and it is good. Just wish I had installed AVFS first so I could look in archives etc. If you don't like it it uninstalls cleanly so give it a try.

To complete the retro look, it should be paired with either XNEdit or Xcoral and run on Fvwm

I recently learned about this interesting project:

https://github.com/leo-arch/clifm

And I think it might be time for me to give another chance to this project:
