Because it's a legendary app! There are two best file managers ever created: Total Commander and Far, but Far is free. Actually, I use both lol.

Because it's a TUI (Text User Interface) program, it's much faster than many other file managers out there. It's also keyboard-driven, and once you learn the shortcuts and download the necessary plugins, it becomes indispensable. Use it together with ConEmu (install to a Far folder) for better Unicode support and prettier color palette. Great amount of features, and it's still free!

I've quickly become a huge fan of far manager. What really makes far manager is the plugins. Two examples of really great plugins are the winscp plugin that allows your to do sftp/scp from within far, and the user manager. The one neat feature of the user manager is it allows you require a user to change their password at next login in windows xp home edition. The xp home edition ui hides this feature normally.
