  • I love Filerunner. I've been using it since 1996?? I keep the last original version on a SLAX CD and am using the new version on Debian Computers around the house. I wish Debian would include it their distributions, it's that good.

  • Ever since I started using Linux back in the nineties I have loved Filerunner which in my view is one of the very best if not the best two pane file manager. The most frequently used commands are nicely located in the pane divider. It's also very easy to tweak it's behavior. One of my favourite features is the Run Command On Selected ... utility. The info doesn't get cluttered by unnecessary icons. The background is a nice soothing grey. The only drawback is that if names get too long they screw up column alignment.
