There are many other file manger uses the same design philosophy not only TC!

There are now, but there weren't back in pre-internet + pre-Windows 95 days. You had a choice of Xtree Gold or Norton Commander. Subsequent clones of each used similar naming structure - the *tree or *commander nomeclature.

[OT] My favorite DOS Commander was Volkov Commander, which were supported and developed until a much later date than Norton Commander. The latest betas (4.99.x) of Volkov Commander from June 2000 could even handle long filenames.
