And On that day, the Lords of the land said unto their Master Architect, "The temple you have made to the gods of Wasabi and Maki has brought us no great prosperity" and they sent out him into the lands.

As he traveled to a far off land, he found he wasn't traveling alone, but that he had gained companions, and when they found their new land, they started work on a new temple, one that would be OPEN to all who wanted to worship.

Seriously though, I prefer to use the command prompt, particularly with the improvements that 2000 adds to it - such as directory and filename completion.

I'm looking for one that has mouse gestures and bookmarks, but I can't find any. Can Opera be used as a file manager?

I write my own programs to fill needs Windows can't provide... like a mass file renamer with search/replace capability, a file sorting program that stuffs files in alphabetical folders, zipping folder of files--each into their own zip and more. I don't use an explorer. I just write a utility whenever I need one. One of my favorite things to do is to write file manipulation apps.

...

Mouse gestures? Not understanding what you mean. Like gesture commands you find in the game Black and White? That's a little beyond me. hehe I just write things for myself... stuff I can use. Not saying I couldn't write a file manager, just not ambitious enough.

Back in the DOS days I used to use a program called LIST. It was great. Nowadays I just use the Windows interface... and write what I need otherwise.

Waaaaay back when (pre DOS baby), we used a program called Xtree. I think there was a version for MSDOS made as well, but Xtree was my first time with a tree view style interface.

While we're speaking of DOS, I used to use DESQView... great program for multitasking in DOS. Invaluable for someone who runs a BBS.
