File Lister With Preview, like the old Lotus Magellan

Years ago, when I went from DOS to Windows, the most painful program to give up was Lotus Magellan, which was a great file manager that showed the file name on the left and a preview of the contents on the right. You could cursor down the left column and instantly see any file from any program on the right.

It would list files by directory, or alphabetize all the files on a disk, making it easy to find duplicates, and you could tag files for deletion or moving.

I've never found a Windows file manager/browser that does this right. You always have to load a viewer (or load the program and the file).

It just so happens that there's a current discussion on this over at LH.
