    Using Win 7, one has no choice but to use a 3rd party Explorer, and I've used all of them. Some are feature packed but coarse and clunky, others are elegant and intuitive, but a little sparse on features. Nomad.Net and CubicExplorer fall into the latter group. I really like both, but both have shortcomings that can't be overlooked. Cubic does not have an X64 version. Nomad.Net writes a bunch of junk files to your user folders. Their large icon set looks fuzzy, and they forgot to include an "UP" icon. You can't lock the tabs, or easily get to your favorites. There's no way to export a config file or "save state". Ugh. On balance, not bad. My favorite thing about Nomad.Net is, it's in current development. My least favorite thing is, it's not portable. Give it a shaky 4.

    We all agree that TC is the king so I'll review this keeping this in mind.

    I've found Nomad quite nice and easy to use. The interface is better than the one TC offers - just give it a try an you'll see what I mean, but basically has exactly the same functionality, speed, plugin support, etc, apart from the FTP bookmark which I found is better organized in Total Commander.

    There is no 64bit version (yet) - not like is a real issue here and a small delay at startup which I presume is because of .Net.

    Why one use it? Well, I am using it because is completely Free as opposed with TC which is not.

    Used this proggie for a long while, then newer versions installed non-functional. This current version installed and functions on 64-bit WinVista.

    Seems to have all the features one would want for an app of this kind.

    Have used this for a while, and is a very good file explorer. Does what I need it to do as far as working with files.
