    I've stopped using astro as much since i got root explorer...but astro has some good plugins (smb, bluetooth). I have a droid, so i'm not sure what the droid x file manager is like

    This is probably going to be pretty unanimous. I cant imagine anyone preferring the stock file manager over Astro considering all the additional abilities Astro has. Some people might prefer Root Explorer or Estrongs File Manager over Astro though.

    Unless I am missing something, but I could not access my other computers through Astro but I could through the stock file explorer.
