FWIW that wikipedia link is to a "disambiguation page".  The correct
choice there in this context would be "Orthodox File Manager",
with this link:


That page has a list of various OFMs on different platforms.
Here's the link to the wikipedia midnight commander page itself.
There's several screenshots, which should help clarify the concept.
Direct links to them follow, if you want to get a quick visual.


mc running in a konsole window on Linux.

mc running on MS Windows Vista (watch the link-wrap, yes, it's available on MS)

mc running on a Sharp Zaurus (again, watch the link-wrap)
