Xfe file manager: an independent marvel

You’re not, of course, stuck with the file manager that comes with your DE, if you prefer another one. For example, until recently I ran my Debian Xfce system with PCManFM rather than Thunar, while my wife stuck with Thunar even when MATE was her desktop environment.

I now use a graphical file manager that’s completely independent: not tied to any particular distro or DE. And I really like it.
