How to use a spatial Finder in OS X
Authored by: TvE on Jan 23, '10 02:44:55AM

Despite the existence of different other file managers (DiskOrder, muCommander etc.) I still REALLY MISS to find a product as close to TotalCommander as possible, since it is so well created and customizable etc.

I even think/try/want to run it in Parallels or such - despite the large overhead - to get the functionality.

- Unfortunately this will not let me open files in the Mac native application while pressing ENTER, so the parallels way will most likely never work anyway.


Any suggestions for better solutions are much appreciated.
MuCommander is probably the closest. Disk Order would be the winner in case it added TAB support (I have written the author but never received as much as an aknowledgement of him receivíng the mail much less a "Good idea - or Never"…


Just revisited Disk Order: It crashes everytime I "Connect to Server"

If you are not afraid of the terminal - try Midnight Commander

I do a lot of other work in the shell allready, so maybe THAT will be a path to - at least - check it out!
Since it's also X-platform (I strongly presume) I'll be able to use the same tool on Windows as well (IF I find it better that TotalCommander ;-)

Thanx for the tip, I'll read more about it right away!
