ROX-Filer: A Lightweight File Manager that Simply Rocks

,----[ Quote ]
| ROX is one of the genuinely interesting file managers available for the major
| platforms - GNU/Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows (under Cygwin). As can be
| inferred from the manager’s website, ROX-Filer is a project aimed to move the
| best features of RISC OS onto Linux and Unix platforms. Its small footprint
| and configurability are its unquestionable hallmarks.
