Actually it's shareware, but it's only ask for press one of 3 buttons on 
It's support hot-directories, transparent archive handling, custom 
directory and file DIFF (!!!), bundled ftp client, and panel for 
quick-launch of user programs, handy too.
multi-renaming, fast file search (by content and regexp content too), 
search in archive too.
And it's damn really, really FAST.

As for me - there are no analogue in unix/linux. closest - mucommander, 
but it's slow in some cases, and not support file (or dir) comparing.

Well, if we have some commercial games in PBI, why not this?
