    this is a great product.. tired of gnome bloat and slow nautilus i switched to thunar and pcmanfm-mod but there are some tiny issues..xfe has every option nautilus left out after peaking at nautilus elementary.. it feels strong and solid.. its only weakness for me is the lack of standard icon support but oh well.. its an awesome project
