Yes, but a lot fewer bugs than LXDE!
and Thunar is no longer the lightweight app it once claimed to be.
I don't know how it used to be. Compared to Dolphin, it's much lighter.
I use rox filer on my Pandaboard as it has a comparable feature to Thunar but loads almost instantly compared to the 20s or so I can be waiting for Thunar to get its act together (this is running off a SSD via USB2). I can load dolphin in the same time it takes to load Thunar under fluxbox.
I use Thunar, it works for me. It's what XFCE uses to display its desktop. A friend who uses XFCE uses PCManFm and likes that.
That 20s (or longer) Thunar load is due to a longstanding bug (either in Thunar or the underlying GNOME Virtual File System it uses). The workaround for that is to disable GVFS's automatic scanning of network shares. (Or do like I did: remove the GVFS module that does that. I mount file shares using fstab, so no need to have GVFS scan for network shares.)
