What works

Seem to be functional enough to manage directories, files name but not data inside the file. 
However it's a great software on Windows and personally I wanted to discover it evolving on Linux environment.

Main working tests:
- Multi panel and quick files viewer,
- Search files, comparison and renaming files,
- Features working like tree file navigation, filters,
- Quick view and edit files (read without save it),
- Pack and unpack, split file, create MD5,
- Multi-renames, directories selections and views,
- Size of folders display, navigation history display,
- Folder list maker, synchronize directories,
- Saving preferences.

What does not

- Double click on file doesn't open/execute it...
- Edit properties or copy paste files doesn't work.
- Edit file is possible but Saving occurs violation error.


What was not tested

- Features specific to Windows environment (DOS, Wipe, Thumbnails,
Desktop snapshot...)
- Network and USB key reading.
