The Gnome file manager Nautilus has a cool dual pane view which makes moving/copying files much easier. Simply hit f3 to bring up the dual pane view, right click on a file and either move/copy the file to “other pane”. However, unlike KDE, Gnome only allows you to move/copy to “home”, “desktop” and “other pane”.
