Mine is bash :)

I do use one of the graphical folder views occasionally (not sure
which - away from that computer at the moment and only have SSH; can't
see it in update-alternatives), but only for firing up movies and
such, and most of that I do using the Yosemite Project. For actual
file manipulation, I almost invariably use command-line tools. One
reason for this is that it's easy to 'sudo' the odd command that needs
root, but I prefer not to run a graphical file manager as root (mainly
due to a history of such things going and doing too much - like moving
a directory to trash unexpectedly and without a confirmation, really
don't want that happening to /etc!).
