    It is very fast and has a genuine way of presenting where your harddisk space is being used.

    Showing directory size is not enough for me. I need to see files sizes in that big directory. And WinDirStat do it on the first page.

    Many servers are command-line only over ssh, so graphical tools are useless for those. This is a good tool to be able to see what is going on quickly and using only a ssh shell session.

    Well, it's the same but in Linux. Good layout etc. The ony thing I miss is analyzing the entire drive. You can't just analyze /, but /home/ or /whatever/

    Because it uses treemaps. K4DirStat is a better choice for those using KDE, as it also allows deletion of files, etc.

    It works very much alike WinDirStat, albeit without tree directory and you cant really delete anything from the GDM itself, but it shows all the necessary file paths for you to do it easily.

    It uses treemaps, and so provides a good alternative to windirstat for linux users. Really only fully compatible with KDE, and installing it will require that you install a good chunk of the KDE desktop, so gnome users should consider using GD Map instead.
