While nautilus is pretty, if you're after drag & drop, I found
konqueror to be much more functional.

I use dired. Tom Lord (the guy who wrote Arch-come-GNU Arch) wrote an
extension for it called "monkey" which support hierarchical displays
[1] but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Being able to
tag, move, rename files by regexp or the cursor keys is a lot more
efficient that doing similar things with the mouse.
