FM is a Gtk+ file manager which aims to offer the best possible ratio between features, simplicity, and resource usage. Currently all the efforts have gone to the development of the browser. Much thought has been put into the creation of an efficient and easy-to-use interface. Several existing file managers on a variety of platforms have been used as an inspiration and lots of new and original features have been added. File operations are not yet possible, but will soon be supported through a modular interface that will allow anyone to extend and customize Fm.
gentoo is a file manager that uses the two-pane concept and is somewhat inspired by DOpus. It strives to be very configurable and lets you do all of the configuration from a GUI within the program itself. Filesystem access is done through the GIO virtual file system layer whenever possible. Using advanced file typing and styling systems, gentoo determines how to display files in its listings, and also how to act on them. The package includes a set of over 120 unique handcrafted icons for many different types of files.
