I'm hunting for a windows explorer replacement and want to get views on available tools. Looking for non-shareware.

Here are the Google results for "best windows explorer replacement" in the past year: google.ca/… –  fideli Dec 31 '09 at 5:44
    
I am hoping for some insights from people who've actually used them. Sometimes a list of feature doesn't tell you if the tool is easy to use or not. –  IttayD Dec 31 '09 at 16:09

Well, personally I like Windows Explorer as-is, however, on top of that, I don't know why you want to get rid of shareware because Total Commander is brilliant!

Apart from that I used Explorer XP in the past and liked it.

As for reviews, there isn't really one answer fits all, I like these tools but it depends how you want to use them - do you want something to make file operations easier, opening files better, picture gallery/viewer etc.

Another one to look at is Free Commander.

Whatever you choose, I recommend you test thoroughly inside a VM to make sure it works the way you want.

This wikipedia page should interest you...

But the more convenient I have used is not a replacement but a freeware explorer plugin: QTTabBar - It has all features I need and, as a plugin, doesn't break any shell feature
