After a long vote in the newplex hq, we have decided that Midnight commander will be the featured project for the next two weeks.

For those ignorant gui guyz midnight commander (or mc for its users) is a visual file manager, licensed under GNU General Public License and therefore qualifies as Free Software. It’s a feature rich full-screen text mode application that allows you to copy, move and delete files and whole directory trees, search for files and run commands in the subshell. Internal viewer and editor are included.

Midnight Commander is based on versatile text interfaces, such as Ncurses or S-Lang, which allows it to work on a regular console, inside an X Window terminal, over SSH connections and all kinds of remote shells.

Well played midnight commander community, you have a strong lobby inside the Transifex corporation 😀
