This is not a message intended to flame Linux; I very much enjoy having Linux. I am hoping someone who is also a Linux lover can point me to something I haven't yet found and seriously need. A really, really good file manager. I think I've tried every one so far - and nothing even comes close to being as easy to use as funky old windows explorer. In windows I mostly use that with QT Tabbar added, but I also use X2, FreeCommander and a few others - and have just been unable to find anything remotely close to a really good one for use under Linux. Why do I care, you may ask... I have several hard disks with significant amounts of important files that I connect externally with a USB adapter & small power supply. Trying to navigate through a great many folders and files using Thunar, SpaceFM or any of the others is much harder than with plain, old explorer. Does anyone here have a suggestion for a really good dual or quad-pane plain old file manager that is nice & easy to use under Linux ?? Thanks for any helpful replies !!
