With Debian testing, I really appreciate the integrated text editor "mcedit". Midnight Commander and MCedit are also useful for administrative tasks (root).

Midnight Commander or MC for short, is just a classic file manager for Linux and other similar environments. It's stable, well documented and have a well designed TUI (text user interface), also, Midnight Commander has a very good support for network protocols, you can easily access files using SFTP, for example.

Midnight Commander also functions as a TUI (text user interface - using ncurses) ftp client. However, I've noticed that the ftp connection keepalive seems non-existent so after a few minutes, you will no longer be connected. This keepalive behaviour is in contrast to what WinSCP would do. Also, moving, copying and traversing directories will run into the occasional hiccup.
