    Unquestionably the best. I have been using this as my default file manager for the last several years. Works just as intended. But have not seen much activity in recent times.

    An excellent program which is improved at every new version. No doubt one of the best.
    I keep using it since long ago because of its flexibility and excellent results.

    While FreeCommander might be the best non-payware OFM on Windows, it lacks the user experience of its payware compatitors. The UI looks just cheap.
