    Its the father of the complete "Commander" bunch. It is very reliable and starts much faster than the double commander. The rest is very much alike. I think double commander ist a clone of the original Total commander.

    Double-pane is not Files primary mode, but it does support it. Files has a lot less functionality and no focus on keyboard use-/accessibility.
