If you’re not a fan of your computer’s operating system’s file manager, you really ought to check out muCommander. There’s a version for just about every operating system known to man. Remember that alien computer system in the movie Independence Day? The one that Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum uploaded a computer virus onto while docking with the alien mothership? Well, I think you can even download a version of muCommander for that operating system.
The list of available versions is that extensive.
The interface allows you to easily move files between directories through a two-panel view. I think there’s other options as far as the display is concerned, but the default two-lanel system works great. I try using two panels with Vista’s Explorer and it’s hard to keep the two displays up at the same time.
This software is free and it’s much better.
