Unix Tree Rocks 1

I was always a fan of the (now defunct) Xtree file management utility for DOS.

In the world of 32-bit Windows, it was reborn as ZTree, a full-featured 32-bit native Windows app with a strictly text interface. ZTree was about 700 kb in size and was wonderfully fast for managing files. It was the only program I put in my Windows “Startup” folder.

So I entered “xtree linux” in Google this morning and found Unix Tree on the first hit.

Note: It seems to work best when started from the command line, as opposed to being started from the KDE menu.

    Holy cow, I’d forgotten all about Xtree. Totally and completely. Remembering it makes me realize I am older than I think. Xtree reminds me of my ham radio days when I ran VHF packet radio, and spent $6 an hour to chat on Compuserve. Gosh, it seems like that all happened in a previous century.

    Wait… it did…
