Official and widely used are two different things :-) I don't believe
there's been a poll, but based on the discussion on this list rox is an
extremely common choice among XFce users. There was even an brief attempt
to merge projects back in the planning stages of Xfce4, but the Rox
developer wanted to build his own DE.

XFFM is a serviceable file manager and obviously meets some people's needs
perfectly (e.g., Edscott). It's got a ways to go before it'll be my file
manager of choice though.
