Nautilus, Nemo or Thunar?

I have yet another poll for you. Do you prefer to use Nautilus, Nemo or Thunar as a file manager?

Zorin has set up nautilus to be very aesthetically pleasing. I see no reason to switch. The only change I made is to make it one click.


I use Nemo because it's more configurable. It also has multi-tab support built in (F3 on the keyboard), which makes copying/moving between directories a breeze (drag and drop). The look and feel are both what I'm familiar with.


The only thing i wish nautilus would have is the ease of renaming a file/folder. When i double click on a file in windows it allows me to rename that file/folder. When i do that in nautilus nothing happens and i have to press F2 to rename a file.

Nemo has that, if you double click on the name of the file and not the icon. Remember, nautilus is by gnome, so limited, without extensions or add-ons... just like the DE.

I can't vote as I use/prefer Dolphin as I run Plasma on Devuan 3.1.1.

although I voted for Nemo, the file manager (nautilus) on zorin is very pleasing to me.
