OSNews, Generic OSes "ROX is one of the genuinely interesting file managers available for the major platforms - GNU/Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows (under Cygwin). As can be inferred from the manager's website, ROX-Filer is a project aimed to move the best features of RISC OS onto Linux and Unix platforms. Its small footprint and configurability are its unquestionable hallmarks."

It's fine; just set up some shortcuts. For example, on my ROX-Filer setup, pressing "n" duplicates the current window. Then <Win>+S does a vertical split (i.e. puts one window above the other), while <Win>+| puts them side-by-side.

The two split commands are provided by the WM (Ion 3 in my case). It's better to let the WM provide the layout/tabbing features than to have every program implement its own.

Of course, this also allows you to have as many windows or tabs as you want.
