I do realize that this is not my choice what gets removed and goes in to DSL, but I will miss mc dearly... :(  No matter how many "graphical" file managers I have tried, I allways go back to mc on a console...

Is there any chance to keep mc at the expense of something else?

Uh, Id really really miss MC as well :((
It suited dsl so very fine...
Id very much rather get rid of alternative windowmanagers instead of nice tools...
Just my opinion of course,

silence tells me secretly...

Myself, like the others, also can't work without Midnight Commander.

I've tried numerous file managers in my life but nothing is like Norton Commander [old days] or Midnight Commander [nowadays].

Please reconsider throwing something else away :)

I know I can install mc from apt, but mostly I use DSL from USB on messed up Windows PC's [almost everyday] and by the time I set an internet connection and get mc I would already fix the problem.
Working with mc is sooooo fast. Try that with a graphical FileManager :)

THX for reading this.
