That suits my way of working and thinking thoroughly; apart from that, tests have shown that Parallels is the most efficient way to run Windows on a Mac (even more so than with BootCamp). So although I downloaded a trial of VMware, I did not even try it anymore.
Thanks. I am going to ask him why he prefers VMWare; reading your comparison, I would want Parallels, I am pretty sure. Though for now I get by with just my Mac.

Read this mind-boggling story …
Very interesting. I have been avoiding tricks that needed me to use terminal. Now I am thinking it looks like fun.

One thing that seems to be missing everywhere (or well hidden and not shown in screenshots) is a location field (complete path for currently-viewed directory) for easy editing and copy & paste. We'll see...

I'll take a real look at XFile first.
Isn’t complete path information now in Leopard (with the latest update)? I think I read that somewhere. (Still not using Leopard.) Or do you mean something else?

Let us know how you find XFile.
