"Gnome Commander, an advanced twin-panel graphical file manager for the Linux Manage and monitor your systems with Landscape for Ubuntu. Free 60 day Trial. OS, brings back memories of my pre-Windows days. That is an era when graphical shell programs were popular before the Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) DOS (Disk Operating System) desktop gave way to the Windows 95 GUI (Graphical User Interface).

"If that sounds like a put-down for Gnome Commander, I do not mean it that way. Linux has come a long way in recent years to equal or surpass the icon-driven desktop that Microsoft mimicked from Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) desktop design. A two-panel file manager for any OS is sometimes a must-have tool. Nothing says fast and efficient like a good file manager app when it comes to working with files.

"Gnome Commander has the look and feel of these early file workhorse programs like Norton Commander and Midnight Commander. Not all file managers for Linux are created equal. As its name suggests, Gnome Commander is designed to run on Linux distros based on the Gnome desktop. Its powerful feature set puts Gnome Commander in an advanced user category among the likes of Krusader twin-panel file manager for KDE and the Thunar File Manager."
