Far Manager has gone open source.
And this is a big deal. Mainly because as a file manager, it is not only easily used and very interactive, but it’s also a command shell type program. Giving it a lot more usability than your usual file management systems for Windows. Even the guys at Avert Labs, apparently use this for malware analysis.
And that’s a big deal when it comes to trying to find out how things work and managing those files in an efficient and easy manner. Not exactly the type of tool for the timid, but then again, most people wouldn’t like command shell anyways.
