Check those two links below:

Any comments are welcome.

As for my part: Although I'm Greek and xplorer2 is the birth child of a copatriot,
nevertheless as we Greeks say "If you don't praise your house, it will collapse
and kill you" and based on that no one would ever praise a rival in his own site.

Taking that into account, presenting Total Commander 2nd in a competitor's site
could only mean for us that Total Commander still holds the 1st place in our
heart and not only! ;-)

If I emigrate to Slovakia where a pint of beer is £0.40 I may even be able to retire a wealthy man as it is :)

Well fet's face it: compared to Total Commander everything else is fluctuation noise.

Too much Ouzo I guess. The last time I read that much nonsense I have been visiting the Altap site.

The sad thing is that I have even explained nikos the content plugin interface when we had contact in 2005 – hasn't helped obviously.

He would be a good tester for PC Professional, that's for sure. :)

Heh! The text had a "tricky" comment of out-of-the-box testing. Of course we all know
that searching inside PDFs is possible in TC via plug-ins and that custom menus can have
hundreds more commands than the fixed ones in xplorer2.

Praising the house without the furniture I guess! :P

Why did they wrote that TC can't search in MSOffice docs? It can with UNICODE checkbox set.

Not always. If DOC contains some complex structure inside, it is not stored as simple Unicode, even if in Word you see it just as usual text; hence in this case TC won't find it.

I've seen Altap site mentioned by you and I am terrified. Does anybody bought it? Reading that page I can be sure that even freeCommander is better (no, it's not the coutry reason)...
Btw. what is the sense of storing settings in the registry for that kind of tool that long (next version will handle sett. file)?
EOT from my side.

The sense is that Registry is recommended by MS to store settings to. And ini files are outdated regarding to MS.

I personally like ini files more, but MS "recommends" new API.

@fenix_productions:
Nope, you got me wrong I think. Servant (Altap) Salamander is a rock-solid piece of software, it outperforms Total Commander hands-down regarding file panel speed for example...

But, its development progress is very slow, so it lacks way too many features, like tabs, column types, config files instead of registry, etc... Despite many downsides they have created a stupid file manager comparison page with outdated and wrong information regarding its competitors which is what I was targetting at.

@m^2:
Well, you should enter the strings correctly... ;)
