I am Expert in Hardware/Software for 19 years, and near 15 years use east type of file manager from same NORTON COMMANDER (DOS - Norton Utilities), happening through WINDOWS COMMANDER, that is tools that save time, and as much gives certainty in the handling of the information for experts as for nascent which they are clear the careful at the time of carrying out copies or changes in the system. Now MIDNIGT COMMANDER as much for UNIX as for LINUX pleased to me.

MC is an extremely good tool to accelerating your shell skills. Norton Commander which is for MSDOS and Windows helped me become an expert DOS user. Now im starting being a Linux newbie, Midnight Commander which is very much like Norton Commander helped me explore Linux system so fast ;) NhanQT nhanqt@yahoo.com.

This program is a must have program. It is sooo handy for those times when X is broken and you need to edit files easily and fast from the console.
