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.

It goes without saying that the king of Orthodox File Managers (two-panel) managers on Windows (or anywhere) is Total Commander. It has all the features mentioned in the article and more.

It is probably the best known current implementation of the concept started by Norton Commander all those years ago.

It's a nice article, but I found the lack of the historical perspective or comparisons with TC kind of weird.

It's all good, but the king is still Far Manager, because it seamlessly combines command line handling and dual-pane file-manager.
