In Response To: Re: xtree for unix (Brian Kaminer)

Well, in the meantime xtree for UNIX Systems is running perfectly on my Linux
system (with iBCS2 emulation). Version 1.0 is somewhat unstable and buggy,
but 1.1 is much better, running smoothley and soon became an indispensable
tool, and I "Don't leave $HOME without it" now... ;-)

The xtree for UNIX versions have some shortcomings against the DOS versions,
but also, on the other hand, some really handy features never realized in
XTreeGold,such as horizontal split-screen/autoview-mode, split-screen
statistics, a "Goto" (filename) command and many more cool things.
I think I'll soon add some more screenshots in this connection to the XTFP.
