    its homepage is http://doublecmd.sourceforge.net/ (always nice to have that in a posting) Its ‘cross platform’ in that it seems to have windows 32 and 64bit versions also.

    It also seems to have qt and gtk versions. Im downloading the debs right now to test it out. Since the ppa repo dosent seem to be working right.
