A shout out to all you *box guys... what do you use for your graphical file managers? ROX-Filer, Nautilus, Konqueror... others? What do you guys like?

I like Nautilus, but it doesn't work in Fluxbox like it does in Gnome... :?

Konqueror is pretty neat, although its best used running under KDE, because it loads a lot faster. Stuff like fish make it really useful to me (fish provides file manager style access across SSH). If you are willing to put up with slower loads time, give it a try, otherwise I would recommend rox as well!

Cheers

Terminal 99% of the time, emelfm2 when I'm moving massive quantities of files.

Rox for managing simple groups of files and other comfortably graphical tasks; drag and drop, etc.

Good old mc, though not really graphical in every sense of the word, for managing directory trees and using two panels.
