That interface is "midnight commander" (you can see it says "mc", the command, in the console title - it's a very well known old-school file management app. I used to use a similar system called FileMaven (IIRC). The console itself looks like Yakuake to me.

mc and yakuake are most likely in your distros standard repos.
