I STILL use it when I boot FreeDOS for my DOS based Ghosting of system drives.

Not that much in the spotlight, but one of the great concepts of NC was the introduction of an internal (un)packer)

Yep, started at NC 3.0. Last DOS-style orthodox filemanager used was Volkov. But the hassle of short filenames turned me away from DOS-box style managers. have also used Midnight commander a fair bit in shells.

Volkov v. 5 (beta) http://www.egner-online.de/vc/en/vc5.shtml supports long filenames.

You are right petermad, the v5 beta had support, but if my mind works somewhat correct, there were a fair bit of problems with NT. Well, other software came and closed the gap. Used FAR for a bit as well after volkov.

Dos Navigator ruled !

I think it had this option that TC doesn't have: display executables (.com, .exe) on top of list. It would be nice to be able to customize which types should come on top

I've used Norton Commander since the mid-80s. It's still installed on my IBM XT.

Anyone use the FILELIST (aka FLIST and FULIST) command on IBM's VM/CMS mainframe operating system? Those date back to the late-70s.

NC was my first computer experience at all Smile, and later I used Dos Navigator too.
Since than I can't use a computer without this "two panels style" to manage files: when I have to work at a new computer and I have no NC style tool around I feel like I don't have the hands(and not getting air) or something Smile.

Right on. It's the basic survey of source and destination, a situation quite common if handling files..
There was more introduced. Viewing some content, data or bitmap, opening an external editor, moving files..

OT: My second favorite on DOS was NU. An excellent box full of useful system tools.

Norton Commander was great!

The only filemanager i liked that could handle transfers via serial/parallel connection.
