It was the inspiration (the nicest way of saying it got copied) that created Windows Commander when it ceased being developed and was abandoned by Symantec when Peter Norton sold out. It was very much the same design philosophy that you see in TC today.


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.
