WinNc v5 - Norton Commander filemanager for Windows 7, Vista and XP (explorer replacement) review and GiveAway 15 Personal Licenses for our readers

WinNc is a tabbed file manager especially developed for Windows 7. It also works on the older versions of Windows. This NC clone file manager is inspired on the dual panel concept of the old file manager Norton Commander. It has shortcuts to all the Windows 7 special folders and the multiple tabbed interface allows you to organize your data by projects. Projects can include files and folders that are related to the project.

i am using xplorer2 all this while and very happy with it, a pro version for this would be great.
Nonetheless, I shall give WinNC v5 a try. The new interface and multitab features look good. Other features I like is the build-in-search, compare files and sync.
