rather dumb question

I was wondering - just for an example: i ws running another distro - if you install e22 say. what file manager does it have or use? does it install one with e or does it use whatever pre-existing filemanager the said distro was running/using? I guess - what is the default file manage in e? thanks in advance. again just wondering...

It's been a while since I used E, but, as I recall, it includes a minimal set of applications and I don't believe a file manager is among them. Enlightenment leans much more to being a window manager than an desktop environment. (I've always considered it a DE, because it has graphical configuration tools, but that's my quirk. The project considers it a window manager.)

It does, however, find and include existing applications on its menu.

From the Enlightenment website:

We have included common features such as a terminal emulator, video player, an image viewer, and even the makings of an IDE.
Again, it's been a while and, if my memory is faulty, I'm sure someone will correct me.

Of course Enlightenment does have its own embeded file manager. It is called EFM (enlightenment file manager). It was also in Moksha but as it was too simple lacking lots of features, Jeff decided to remove it. It was also bind with desktop icons, so I had to put EFM back, disable it and use just desktop icon functionality.

Bodhi linux team decided to use PcmanFM as our default file manager.

This is how EFM looks:

Thanks. something in the back of my mind said that maybe it had a file manager of sorts; but then what i read on the enlightenment site it seemed a bit vague. interesting. I also wasn't sure if i was correct in thinking that jeff and the team went with pcman. that is why i thought the question might come as as DUMB!
