Favourite OS MS-DOS & Win 3.x
I always use Norton Commander, because the double navigation panel, greatly simplified me the copying of files, even between two PCs with the option to transfer files via the parallel or serial port.
I'm looking for PC abandonware software, applications, OS, CAD, word processing, spreadsheets, programming, educational software, databases, sound or graphics editors, file managers, etc. If you have some old software or collection please share it.

Favourite OS Windows 386 & MS-DOS 3.31
I am using the Volkov Commander, because it is fast und it does support Long File Names with DOSLFN under MS-DOS 7.x and 8.0. In addition it is a small DOS application, which is programmed in assembly.

Favourite OS All Microsoft operating systems!
To manage files under MS-DOS: Windows 3.1x!
Even though Windows 3.x is actually an operating system, since it runs alongside MS-DOS, I prefer that to using MS-DOS itself for file management, especially when Windows 3.x offers File Manager, Notepad, and Write, as well as for multitasking between applications.
