It has Mozilla Public License.
It is Windows only (must be Win32)
It is a great File Manager.
ReactOS could really use this one.
NOT BAD :O works fine on ROS

Edit: gabrielilardi told me that it's written in "pascal" :(

Available on Windows XP and above, it features the same familiar interface as Windows Explorer, while introducing several enhancements and improvements for a much richer file browsing experience.

Explorer++ is composed of six individual projects. There are currently ~35,000 lines of code (not including comments or whitespace) distributed across the entire solution, with the source been a mixture of C/C++.
Now open source, licensed as GPLv3.

Can you post a screenshot from ROS as well?

MPL is incompatible with the GNU GPL so it can't be included in ReactOS

Cubic explorer igorko is reffering to is written in Pascal/Delphi, so it wouldn't be useful for ROS' codebase anyway... Explorer++ has compatible licence, C/C++ works for ROS too, the only problem with the app is It Just Doesn't Work Now (TM) :D

I will point out that the actual libraries that any application links to in ROS are LGPL or an even more liberal license, so applications that people propose don't need to be GPL or etc. GPL compatibility just serves as a useful metric in some instances. The primary point of importance is whether there is an equivalent in Windows and whether we need to have it in ROS.

http://www.klocwork.com/ - source code analysis, free for opensource, sounds very similar to Coverity.

We dont want ppl add ReactOS "fixes" anyway. If a app fails, then its our fault and not theirs
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

how about abusing the API in non-planned ways? or maybe ReactOS fixes as in patches for ROS's own code :)

This explorer++ is a big promise. I really would like to see ROS in that skin... WOW...

But I think appearence will be one of the last things to get stable because is everything works fine, this is just a detail.

Bit it would be marvelous indeed.
