XFP Updates and ZTree's XTree Heritage

Posted By: Greg Akers <>

Hi, Mathias! Welcome back.

Although I certainly can't begrudge you any time off from here, I'm very glad to see the XFP get up-to-date now. You've really spoiled this XTree Fanatic with your excellent website. I still come here quite often looking for interesting Forum postings and to learn more neat stuff about XTreeGold (and even ZTreeWin).

Here's where Kim posted a link to the recent follow-up article on ZTree that had a little more XTree history, but not much.:


I was still confused that this didn't seem like the "XTree report" I expected which was mentioned in the first ZTree article, but Kim says that was it anyway. Too bad the article didn't refer to the XTree Fan Page for anyone interested in more info. Oh well, Kim sure deserves the publicity for carrying on the XTree legacy.

Actually you might wanna add a link to this article on your "Reviews" page, or somewhere, for it's fascinating reference to the part about Kim offering to program a 32-bit OS/2 version of XTreeGold for the XTree Company before they sold out to Central Point! You might already have this on your website somewhere, but I don't remember reading it before. I think it's a fascinating tie-in between XTree and ZTree.

I also didn't realize that John C. "Dvorak also arranged for Symantec to agree to allow Henkel legal rights to use XTree's look and feel." That gives ZTree even more legitimate heritage than any other XTree clone, as far as I've ever heard!!

Do you know of any other such legal arrangement for an XTree clone? I guess UnixTree, formerly known as "XTree for UNIX Systems" is the only other legal XTree descendant, eh?
