Said about K4DirStat as an alternative
k4dirstat shows listings and information, where filelight shows you a neat looking graphic that doesn't have any useful information unless you hover over each element. filelight also doesn't allow you to see which files are taking up a lot of space because it just clumps all files into a single listing.
I like K4DirStat as an alternative to WinDirStat because I like WinDirStat (and its UI) and K4DirStat's UI is very similar.
It uses treemaps, and so provides a good alternative to windirstat for linux users. Really only fully compatible with KDE, and installing it will require that you install a good chunk of the KDE desktop, so gnome users should consider using GD Map instead.
