Sunflower Comments

Better with every release

Positive Comment by User2964908
about Sunflower and Total Commander Apr 2013

I was a hardcore user of Total Commander and missed it a lot when I switched to Linux. There are many alternatives in the Linux world but either they were lacking some features or I didn't like their look. Sunflower is still alpha software, it does lack features and does have bugs. But it pleases my eyes way more than other file managers, and it gets better with every release. It's a pleasure following its rise.
