Re: IBM Systems Mag sez "All Hail the Midnight Commander!"

I have to say i'm also very grateful for it.  Having mc installed is a necessity, i'm really surprised its use isn't even more widespread among CLI users.

I'll take this opportunity to thank all of the contributors to this
wonderful program that I have been using since 1996 with my first foray
into Slackware Linux.  I recall that its package description said
something about Norton Commander, but I never saw it or used it back in
my MS/PC-DOS days.

Midnight Commander is the first package I install on a new system if it
isn't installed already.  I recommend it to everyone interested in
trying Linux.  It is such a versatile program that over time I'll have
five or six instances of mc running in various virtual terminals.
Sometimes I'll find I started it twice in the same vt!

Thanks again.
