    Nemo and Deepin File Manager are good ones. While Deepin File Manager does not yet have a split screen option it can operate in a similar fashion with CNTRL+T. It also has the most awesome and useful tagging functionality that makes organizing your files so much nicer.

    Nemo is also a great File Manager that works well on just about any desktop environment. There are ways to install it that do not require the extra Cinnamon dependencies, also.

    Caja is worth mentioning as well. For a lightweight file manager Caja has quite a few features. Like Nemo, it works pretty well outside of its native Mate environment.

    I myself tried some of this commanders, but I really prefer only 2 of them – Gnome and Krusader, where Krusader is the best – comparable with Norton or Totalcmd – all other are clumsy – I need always twin panel.

    None of them shows the metadata as file explorer in windows can show. I mean the data about the artist or name of song or exif of a photo.

    Ignore my comment … I just saw your #10 – SpaceFM.

    I had missed it when i first scanned the document.

  5. Mike Dempsey says:

    Is there any file manager that has a real ‘Tree View‘ interface so that we can see the entire directory structure instead of just one directory at a time?

    Ideally something like the old Norton [PC Tools] File Manager for Windows … or even just the lame Microsoft file explorer.
