Mac OS X For all of the strengths of OS X, two of the complaints recycled year after year are the aged filesystem, HFS+, with its lack of file integrity, and the file manager, the Finder. While replacing HFS+ remains out of our reach, an alternative to the Finder for day-to-day tasks has been achievable for some time. Enter "Commander One," a dual-pane file manager that seeks to fill in the holes that the Finder has famously left. Let's dig in and see what Commander One has to offer.

MS-DOS had Norton Commander, which is the reason why " Commander" in a file manager name is usually code for "Orthodox File Manager". You can see this on Windows with Total Commander, on *nix (and Cygwin and DJGPP/DOS32) with GNU Midnight Commander, on Android with Ghost Commander, and in Java with muCommander. Hell, muCommander and Midnight Commander are both available for OSX, the former as a dmg and the latter via "brew install mc". Midnight Commander in particular has most of the features of this thing's "pro pack" gratis, including FTP, SFTP, and virtual filesystem support for rar and 7z.
