X File Explorer (Xfe) is an MS-Explorer like file manager for X. It is based on the popular, but discontinued, X Win Commander, which was developed by Maxim Baranov.
Xfe aims to be the filemanager of choice for all the Unix addicts!

For a file manager whose development rests on one person, as a project which isn't strongly affiliated with any window manager or any desktop environment, this file manager is a gold standard. The computing world is becoming very mature, and simpler file managers might not cut it for the tasks you might wish to accomplish. Did you want to search for a certain file name by looking through all the files on a removable drive? You know the scenario: "I know I put it on this flash drive!", but you have tens of thousand of files on that flash device? XFE can do that (Thunar as of v1.6.3 cannot). Do you want side by side directory trees so that you can click or multi click then drag and drop files where you want them? XFE does that! Take a step up, give this humble file manager a shot!
Where I can take initial a code?
Xfe rocks running on "Unbuntu on Windows" + XMing.
If Microsoft's developers did something right with Windows, it's the GUI (pre Win8). Neither is it a bad thing nor a shame to adopt some of these aspects / features - Microsoft obviously has very skilled developers. As much as I like Linux, most available file managers seem to try to be unique, different, or the opposite to Windows Explorer. Let go the hate and do the right thing. Xfe is so far the most comfortable file manager I have seen / used on Linux.
all features I need, unlike tux commander where I cannot configure shortcuts, select multiuple files... rich featured though the design=UI seems a but "back in the times" like 15-20 yrs ago, but the UX is quite good but I'm missing a panel for file options like in krusader a bit - but that's maybe only my personal taste cause I'm accustomed to that a bit
