In Response To: Re: xtree for unix (Mathias Winkler)

I ran Unix Xtree on a Sun unix system many moons ago and it was so slow
and cumbersome it was almost useless. The Unix network I was on allowed
us to map unix dirctories as DOS drives using NFS (Network File System) and
I used both Xtree Gold and Ztree running on my PC to manage my unix files.

Ztree worked just great on the mounted drives. Much faster than and better
than any of the native unix file tools.
