I call bs on that!  For all the other fawncy file managers they've tried to 
paint a decent face on over the last 5 years, not one of them can even begin 
to compare with mc.  Sure, the current Krusader is pretty, but it can't do 
90% of what mc can.  When it can, then talk about dropping mc, and not a 
millisecond before.
