The current version is 0.9.2 and it works great for what I need: easy access to hidden files on my Mac and on my Linux server. I would prefer a similar dual-pane mode in Finder, but as a free solution, this is fantastic.

Has been user of muCommander for a long time. But not anymore. Now I use FastCommander. Finally I can really enjoy my Mac. It is new, native Cocoa app. It is very fast, small, takes much less memory, has consistent platform look, is simple to use and has pixel perfect UI. No bugs, no problems, no Java and loads 10 times faster.

One of the best Norton-like commanders on Mac. Stable, simple and very easy in use. New Mac OSX block installation of this app, so you have allow yourself to install apps from different sources in the security tab, system preferences.

The MacUpdate download is corrupt. The download link from developer site is dead. I don't see an easy way to report the problem here or on the developer web site.

I used the linux equivalent of this program for years. It's well worth it to give it a try... you'll be surprised how intuitive it is, in spite of what most would call it's "un-mac-like" interface.

I've been using MUCommander to browse inside .zip files without having to decompress them first. This feature alone makes it worth having around. It saved me hours when all I needed was to find a specific image inside a 675MB .zip archive...

One of the few positive things I remember about a job I had where I was moving files around a pre-networked office was that Norton Commander made the job a lot easier. muCommander does a good job of presenting a Norton Commander style presentation of your hard disk, and a lot more besides. You'll see lots of things in this app that you'll wish the Finder included. mt

I really like it! The only thing it lacks that I use quite a lot is quicklook integration. I know that's asking quite a lot though and I'm not even sure if it's possible.

Very nice, basically does all I want. Gets 4 stars because of the long startup time for a 2 meg program (well it's Java...) and the ugly icon.

Well it's not as nice as pathfinder: http://www.cocoatech.com/ but it is free. For those that enjoy the old Norton Commander it is a close resemblance. The icon needs desperate help though, yikes.

Ahhh how i've missed NCommander... Good to see something similar on mac now. I really can't remember what features old NCommander had but.. this app is a helpful gem. And damn those zealots like ZO219: His/her comment isn't even worth being called a comment, rather a troll post. Norton Commander was just a program for Windows, being coded from, you guessed it, Norton, not Microsoft.

Well, if you want to turn Mac into Windows, and after buying such a nice machine, I suppose that's your right ... but the tiniest adjustment in thinking--oh, never mind.

Oh. My. God. I've always enjoyed file management shells like this, I bet I'll use this every day. The only things I might like to see would be: 1. Option+F opens file menu regardless of which pane you're in (currently opens only if user is in top pane) 2. Capability to preview images without opening them in some way. Managing font files has never been easier!
