GNU Midnight Commander for Windows

Hier klicken für die deutsche Version

In 2000 I was looking for a file manager for Windows that has the functionality of the Norton Commander, but could deal with long file names. I had tested several Windows Commanders, but none of them did satisfy my expectations.

I had worked with the Midnight Commander (MC) under Linux and its functions were good. Then I found the port of MC to Windows by Franco Bez and I enhanced his version.

New features:

The programm has still some bugs, but it is useful. I have used it every day until 2007, but now I use Linux. If you want to fix some bugs or add some features, you are welcome.

I have tested the program under Windows 95, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Other people have tested it successfully under Windows Vista and Windows 7 64 Bit.
