10 File Managers for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Nautilus
| Nautilus is the default file manager coming with GNOME, the popular desktop 
| environment shipped by default in distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora or 
| Debian. Nautilus has a clean and easy to use interface, and its functionality 
| can be expanded using scripts. It features tabs, three view modes (icon view, 
| list view and compact view), the possibility to sort items by name, size, 
| type, modification date or even emblems (a feature specific to Nautilus), 
| bookmarks, file previews, possibility to browse the network, and media 
| devices support.

| A confession: I like playing with software. I’m not indiscriminate about it — 
| I tend to pick and choose the software that I try out. While I mainline 
| Firefox and Opera for my Web browsing, I’ve sometimes felt the need to check 
| out other browsers.   


An overview of FLOSS email clients

| Everybody uses email as one of its primary communication means; Free Software 
| desktop users are no exception. In this regard, email clients play a central 
| role in the way we work and generally live in the Internet. These last years 
| have seen some relative decline in the usage of email clients. The use of 
| standard, more mature web technologies such as Ajax have made the online 
| service of email providers much more attractive, while the justified 
| criticism of "everyone's " email client, Outlook Express drove many to use 
| the simple online interfaces of some major email service providers.

| A file manager is software which provides a user interface to assist in the
| organisation of files. It helps users with their daily work in managing their
| files on a hard drive or other storage device. With terabyte hard disks
| becoming prevalent, file managers represent an essential tool in managing
| file systems.
