This is my favorite file manager, very powerful but slow when a lot of small files are to copied/moved.
Also it creates its configuration files in user folders.

MultiCommander has a bug in log into other directories. I could not log into directories reliably. =( Check the directories you enter with MC!

The "No VLC" and "Full" versions differ significantly in size:
"No VLC"- 27.0 MB (28,334,764 bytes) uncompressed
"Full"- 109 MB (115,235,866 bytes) uncompressed

Unless they have very specific needs, most 'portablists' should go with the "No VLC" version -- and get portable VLC if they need it...
