As for the programs you mentioned, I've used both extensively, but quite a long time ago so I don't have much experience with the recent versions. They were both solid performers at the time, though. SpeedCommander is very German-centric and Salamander seems to want to nickel and dime you for every plugin.

As a German, the centricism isn't too bad for me.  tongue
But thanks for the "comparison" though.

1. I'll stick with TrueCrypt for my container file until it's clear what happens with the audited planned fork.
2. Why use containers anyway? Use EncFS.

@panzer: JustManager still lacks SFTP support, right? Sad

Sorry, Jibz, but I really tried. I tried Total Commander several times since its 7.0 days IIRC, playing with its config., talking to some users, trying to make it look like something I might want to look at for a couple of hours a day. No chance. Even the "Ultima Prime" mod looks awfully on all screenshots I've ever stumbled upon. I guess "form follows function", but if I have the choice, I'd choose both. (Not that x² looked too modern either, but still...)
Yesterday I gave it another run - couldn't even find out how to use the SFTP plug-in.

As I'm currently flooding several boards with it, I'd like to attach my question also here:

Being a happy XY/x² user, I'm still looking for a good "orthodox" file manager (Norton Commander clone) for certain tasks. Required: SFTP support, no way to disable the second panel (I want to force myself into using it correctly), a decent GUI (no Total Commander stuff pls).

Altap Salamander, SpeedCommander or something very different? Any good reasons?
Tried them both (and FAR) and can't really decide.

AFAIK the download provided there probably contains a trojan.

(Well, the spirit of Open Source, right? Secure and trustable and everything.)

Oh, neat, another Linux whose devs misunderstood that Linux is not meant to replace anything.

Atom is a decent browser and still doesn't have a good editor.

Why not Emacs?

cdrtools?
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: ImgBurn - full of OpenCandy and other crap on: May 20, 2014, 02:20:40 PM
I wonder if they come from the ImgBurn forums to advertise here.

dxf is not a photo format anyway...  undecided

Comparison of which Android software?

I'd usually take Android boards' polls into consideration.

Borland killed Sublime Text?

Atom is based on a bloated web browser. Might explain things.
117  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: You have ruined Javascript... Rob Ashton on AngularJS on: May 12, 2014, 03:01:17 AM
Not that Javascript itself (with its implicitly wrong implicit data types) wasn't broken before.

Maybe we need a text-editors-only sub-forum Wink

Yay! Time to rant about Atom!

Textadept is easily on par with Vim, Emacs and ST (to name three popular, powerful editors) in terms of its capabilities.

Where's the mail client?

I guess the "problem with GTK" is a problem with the developer. Other GTK editors work fine.

The "free burning software" market seems to die out slowly.

On Windows, I currently use cdrtools (like InfraRecorder without the GUI clutter) from here (German site). Probably this is one of the very few future-safe options.

With max. 2 accounts? That's not "free" for a typical "power user", I guess. But hey, some *ix clients can only handle one...
122  News and Reviews / Best E-mail Client / Re: E-mail client recommendations on: April 22, 2014, 09:31:33 AM
eM Client is not free.

Mods forget to edit quotes. Hmm.

Above list is incomplete, given that (obviously) a couple of BSDs and derivatives work as a host too.
124  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 02:05:15 PM
*YAWN*... (now that's something of substance.)

I told ewemoa where to look by giving one of the possible answers to the question asked initially. If that's not enough, ewemoa might come back to it, right?
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 01:51:51 PM
Yep, the host software and the guest software. Now how does this invalidate my thesis?

(Interestingly, you emphasize a different part every time.)
