You surely know or use the legendary Directory Opus 4
- also known as 'Diropus' or 'DOpus' - which is still considered as the most powerful file manager on Amiga computers. It features two directory windows, a very intuitive graphical user interface including Drag and Drop functionality and is probably one of the most configurable programs you'll ever come across.
It was developed by Jonathan Potter, the first (commercial) version was released in 1990. Development continued until 1994 (up to version number 4.12), when Jonathan joined GPSoftware
as a partner, due to disputes with his former distributor about the non-payment of outstanding royalties.
Together, they rewrote the program from scratch, turning it into a complete Amiga Workbench replacement. The 'new' Directory Opus (version number 5, the later versions are called "Magellan" or "Magellan II") is still available for the Amiga, it is now owned by Guru Meditation
