Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I mainly use krusader or mc depending on which flavour of Ubuntu I'm using. krusader is more advanced but I went with mc as I like to use terminal applications and it's so quick to start, stop and navigate directory trees. It's one of the first applications I add to a new installation.
Are zsh or bash valid? Or at least a generic "shell" option?
we could code another new one based on ncurses, no?

You should try tuxcommander. Pitty that no one help the poor man alone coding it. This is the best replacemnt of total comamander.
If you want I can give you a set of icons to make it similar
Would you know a file manager that can clone (icons and so on) this one (of windows)?
I've only ever used Thunar, Nautilus, Dolphin, PCManFM, and Xfe lately, and Dolphin is the clear winner for me. The only thing I'm not a fan of is how it browses Samba shares instead of performing a virtual mount (Like gvfs in all the others).
Nothing touches Konqueror from KDE 3.5 though. Miss those kioslaves.
For me this one looks more a copy of what you can find in well known Linux file managers, like the new tabbed Thunar, PCManFM, Konqueror, etc., with the exception that icons are Windows'. If you just wanna change the icons, I believe you can find Windows icons for Linux on Google.
I use two panel file managers exclusively, and gentoo was my choice back in gtk1.x times. Alas, the gtk2.x versions are nowhere as well performing.
I've looked around for a replacement (debian doesn't ship gtk1.x libraries since long time), but haven't found anything that would quite cut it. Using Worker currently, which is ok, except for the annoying way it handles file type identification: first show the list of files names etc. basic info only, then make another run through the files adding files type based colouring. IMO, this two step handling gives a rather annoying impression of lag. I don't know how the earlier gentoo versions managed to do all this so swiftly, everything since seems subpar.
E: So far MC has been a bit too HC for me, but maybe it's time to give it another try..
