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.

Just a nitpick: Explorer is replaceable.

No, it's not. Even if you replace the interface and launch a different shell, explorer's functions and views are integrated in so many other places that you cannot replace it. Any attempt to do so will essentially brick your Windows installation. The best you can do is launch a different shell which can, to some extent, hide explorer's ui.
