What is Norton Commander?

Norton Commander (commonly shortened to "NC") was a prototypical orthodox file manager (OFM), written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton Computing (later acquired by the Symantec corporation). NC is a file manager which essentially acts as the text user interface for DOS. It was officially produced by Symantec between 1986 and 1998. The last DOS version of Norton Commander, 5.51, was released on July 1, 1998.

WinNc, a Norton Commander Clone

WinNc was the natural follow up for NC for DOS. WinNc was developed by Dunes MultiMedia for the Windows platform. WinNc uses the same key combinations and the 2-panel technology as NC did.
