windirstat is just a copy of THIS program!

about KDirStat and Filelight, WinDirStat, Baobab Jun 2014

For years I dreamed of finding a similar alternative in linux to the well-known windirstat (for windows) since the two alternatives offered in most distributions, baobab and filelight, display the space taken up by files and folders on concentric circles rather than by rectangles. This has the limitation that when big files are nested deeply or shallowly in folders it makes them difficult to compare, find, etc. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that windirstat got it's concept and even its name from this program! I can't believe it's not the program of choice among distributions.
