I found it, and it's probably the one I'll use. It's not so much the ease of
going from Windows to Linux I'm after, but I much prefer the look and feel of
the Windows explorer to most of the Linux counterparts. Probably the two main
things I didn't like about the Linux programs were overly large buttons that
could have been made much smaller (and taken up less space) and the confusing
and cluttered file listing boxes. I use Linux mostly on my laptop (it's the
PC I live on) and don't have a huge display. Hence most of the file lists
showed 10 files with text wrapped all over the place. It was ugly, and
confusing. I know, I know - I should write my own version, but I'm not that
adept - yet.
Thanks for the help guys.
