Windows Yes, the day is finally drawing closer: the day Windows XP died. October 22, 2010 will be the final and definitive day for the venerable operating system, since OEMs will no longer be able to pre-load it on netbooks after that day. I might not make myself popular around here with this, but thank god, it's about time that pile of junk is taken behind the shed.

It's just like a web browser. Or the old Norton Commander (kudos to whoever invented it). I can't attach a picture here, but FreeCommander is... free, in all respects. So you can try it, or visit the website, there are probably a few screenshots.

This program changed parts of my experience on Windows systems. It has FTP, network drives, MD5 checking/creating, shortcuts editing, secure delete, renaming of multiple files, console launching in the current folder, and a whole bunch of options and capabilities, to the point that the menus look scary.

Just like Opera on the browser side, it allows me to lock/pin a tab and sessions are preserved. I have 8 of my most frequently used folders locked.

Rich, well-thought, very professional program with a very good experience.

The best part is being able to switch folders with only one window in the taskbar. That's what tabbed browsing (whether on a browser or explorer) is useful for (for me).
