            How can you live without NDN?
            NDN is the first program I start after I boot my machine, and the last I shut down. Using NDN, I am more efficient managing files than anyone could ever be using Explorer. Same goes for the command line: take your best Unix guru and have them compile/build/test/release/update files job using the command line - they won't be able to beat a regular user of a file manager such as NDN.

            If you find yourself typing "cd; ls; cp; mv; cat" etc. - get NDN. Your productivity boost will be beyond "significant".

            The best file manager since the year 1993!

            I use this file manager daily since version 1.00a since the year 1993.

            It have very smart realisation of all fearures and everything is configurable.

            This file manager has brought a lot of innovations to Norton-like file managers which became the standard.

            The newer file namagers still have not got all the features which DOS Navigator has in the first versions.
