Beesoft Commander: An old school file manager on the modern desktop

Qt is a nice tool kit and the graphics are much better than MC's, which is NCurses based, but on the other side MC also runs from the console (server based machines). Two areas that I would have to have in order to switch from MC to BSCommander are the ability to hit <Enter> to run the highlighted file. An absolute necessity when testing. Second, resizing the window. You can only resize the height. I use a virtual screen size that is 1 1/2 times the size of the physical screen, which means that part of BSCommander can not be seen and it can not be resized so it's entire window fits into the physical screen size. Although people who have switched from MS Windows do not usually configure a virtual screen, so it may work for them. Trying to compete with MC will always be a tough row to hoe.
