            Best file manager I've found for Linux
            I've enjoyed emelfm so far. Been using it for over a year and
            except for locking up with really large tasks have had
            no problems with it and many good things to say. The
            interface performs as you'd expect. It is much like
            windows commander for those coming from a windoze
            environment. Configurable, easy to use, efficient. I highly recomend emelfm.

            I only use a file manager for specific tasks, like renaming lots of mp3's at once. emelfm is my favorite because it's not bloated, and does the job efficiently.

            Compiled fine under Slackware 7. First impressions are it's a very nice file manager. I've been having a few problems with it locking up when i try and get it to do a lot of stuff. Your mileage may vary, as they say.

            Very nice file manager. Quick, easy to configure, and compiled on my Slackware 7 box with GTK+-1.2.6.
            Good job!
