Gnome Ah, Nautilus, GNOME's default file manager. It's been with us for a long time now, and it has certainly been at the centre of a number of controversies. Do we go with a spatial or a navigational Nautilus? Should we replace the location bar with a breadcrumb bar? And now, it's time to move on. Recently, it has become apparent to many that Nautilus could use a make-over.

As if finder was not bad enough. Recently everyone seems to copy Finder, while literally almost every OSX user hates Finder.
Well Finder would not be so bad by itself, but it lacks tabbing and splitting and VFS integration.
Call me nuts, but I still have yet to find something which is as powerful as Konqueror (with all its hidden functionality which you have to learn) or Total Commander on OSX, and no PathFinder does not cut it it is too slow, although it is the program which comes closest. So if someone designs a filemanager please... do not copy Finder, do something else, but do not copy it!

Krusader is not quite as ambitious as Konqueror, but it's a fine tool to have at your disposal.
