"I love XYplorer. Perfect balance of features and simplicity packaged in a functional and attractive interface."
Bob Miller-Rhees, April 2014
  "XYplorer was one of the best pieces of software written for Windows when I first bought it, and it's only gotten better. Mini Tree may be the best thing ever to happen to an end user, and it's hardly the only selling point for the program."
Jonathan Powers, May 2013
  "I have been using this application for at least a decade and have never found anything that even comes close to the amazing utility this provides. Thank you for making my life easier."
Joe Lippencott, August 2012
