    If Microsoft's developers did something right with Windows, it's the GUI (pre Win8). Neither is it a bad thing nor a shame to adopt some of these aspects / features - Microsoft obviously has very skilled developers. As much as I like Linux, most available file managers seem to try to be unique, different, or the opposite to Windows Explorer. Let go the hate and do the right thing. Xfe is so far the most comfortable file manager I have seen / used on Linux.

    all features I need, unlike tux commander where I cannot configure shortcuts, select multiuple files... rich featured though the design=UI seems a but "back in the times" like 15-20 yrs ago, but the UX is quite good but I'm missing a panel for file options like in krusader a bit - but that's maybe only my personal taste cause I'm accustomed to that a bit

    If this has editable context menus with "appearance conditions" a la Thunar, instead of a scripts folder a la Nautilus, it would be perfect. I wish the site had a formal feature request page. So far, unlike Thunar, it hasn't hung on me once. The feature of being able to color alternate lines in the details view differently makes this a lot easier to use without the oops-wrong-file syndrome. How hard would it be to add Thunar-style custom actions, and what language would I need to learn to attempt it?

    This is great, thank you! Yes, I admit it, I like Windows Explorer, esp. the relatively intuitive keyboard traversal. Nemo, at least, doesn't really give me that. I do see that Xfe hasn't been updated in over a year now. Is this still being maintained? I would like to see an option, like in Windows Explorer, to remember the last view settings for an individual folder, while maintaining the default setting. Am I missing this? Update: I just found the option to enable Shift-Delete for permanent file/dir deletion. All good there, thanks.
