Acelet Filer is a cross-platform file manager. Acelet Filer is very user friendly and very powerful. The interface of Acelet Filer is similar with Windows Explorer of Windows XP. The way to use Acelet Filer is similar with Windows Explorer of Windows XP. So you do not have to change you finger habits. If you are familiar with Windows XP, you will be comfortable on any operating systems. It hides the differences among different Operating Systems. It will help people to adopt Linux, for example Ubuntu.

Acelet Filer is free: free to use, free to distribute. It will be open source later.

Acelet Filer is written in Java computer language. It works on any Operating System which supports Java. Acelet Filer works the same on different platforms. Following is some examples:
Solaris Ubuntu Linux Windows XP

The audience of Acelet Filer

Users who want use free Linux instead of pricing Windows

Linux, such as Ubuntu, is technically better than Windows. Linux becomes more user friendly every day. Acelet Filer on Linux will help user to adopt Linux without learning new interface. Windows will not die, so users need to switch back to Windows from time to time. The same Acelet Filer on both Linux and Windows will make life easier. It is unrealistic for everyone to buy a legitimate Windows in China, India, Brazil, Africa and the world. It is realistic for everyone in the world to get a free Linux and a free Acelet Filer. Acelet would like to contribute to make computer is affordable for everyone.

Users who need to use Linux

The server side is dominated by Unix, such as Linux and Solaris. Many people work on both Windows workstation and Unix servers. The same Acelet Filer on both Unix and Windows will make uses feel like home.

The differences between Acelet Filer and Windows-Explorer

Acelet Filer is a cross-platform file manager. It works for Linux (Unix) and Windows. The interface of Acelet Filer is similar with Windows XP Windows Explorer. If you are familiar with Windows Explorer, you will be comfort with Acelet Filer.

The main differences between Acelet Filer and Windows Explorer of Windows XP are:

Acelet Filer supports both copy and move actions regardless of the source and destination drive or device are different.

Windows Explorer supports move only if the destination drive is the same as the source driver.When source drive is different from destination drive (for example, you move a file from drive C: to drive D:), Windows Explorer does not support move.  This is its shortcoming.  Acelet Filer support both copy and move actions for all drives and devices. Please watch the cursor when you use your mouse to drag a file. If you drag a file with the Control key down, it is the copy action and there is a plus sign on the cursor. If you do not press the Control key when you drag, it is move action, there is no plus sign on the cursor.

Acelet Filer prompts a confirmation window for every user writable action

Acelet Filer prompts a confirmation window for every user writable action, such as copy, move, paste and delete, so you have a chance to cancel if you accidentally started the action. For example, when you drag a file to a different folder, a confirmation window will popup. I, myself, often drag files to a wrong folder accidentally, then regret. With conformation window, I will make less mistakes.

Acelet Filer saves screen estate by removing space among items for List View and Tiles View

Acelet Filer saves screen estate by removing space among items for List View and Tiles View. The General popup menu is at the bottom of your popup menu.

Acelet Filer uses different Recycle Bin

Acelet Filer implements the Trash Specification of FreeDesktop.org. It is very fast. It is for all drives and devices. Windows Explorer does not use Recycle Bin for removable drives.

Acelet Filer uses different way to select and drag

In File Table, the first mouse drag is for selection. All dragged items will be selected. When selected items exist, mouse drag is for dragging. If you want to drag a file to different folder, you need select first, than drag.

The differences between Acelet Filer and Nautilus file manager

Nautilus file manager is a very good file manager on Linux. But, Acelet Filer is more like Windows Explorer of Windows XP, so you do not have to change your finger habits.

Acelet Filer is compatible with Nautilus. For example, they use the same Trash system, although with different implementation.
