Just be aware that by using an alpha or beta software you are essentially testing the product for free, especially if you are reporting issues or bugs.

I have found that more often than not, published alpha or beta version offered for free turn into pay versions of the product when released and that 'tester's are rarely offered the product complimentary or free as a 'thank you' for their testing efforts.

This is why I no longer use alpha or beta versions of a product unless the developer states in advance that the product will be free when the final version is released, or the testers will be offered the product either complimentary or at a substantial discount. This is because I believe that testing a product adds value and that my time and efforts have value as well.

A cryout of the classical Norton Commander for MS-DOS, a must for those times. That famous app had its earlier cryouts for Linux and some attempt for MAC OS X. Let us see whether its author wishes to promote something really useful and logical.

Well it reminds me of Norton Command. Which was the same but for DOS.
In those days it was a great utility because you could open more then one window.
Nowadays it is plain easy to open two or more Finder windows and do the same.

Basically this app is not really needed unless some innovative stuff will be added (read: things that the Finder cannot do).

For now 3 stars but I will keep an eye in this.
