System Commander (SC for short) was a boot manager/loader software application developed by VCOM. In the event that you have more than one operating system installed on your system (i.e. personal computer, harddrive), System Commander makes it possible to choose which one of these operating systems to boot. In this regard System Commander is comparable in overall functionality to software like NTLDR, LILO, GRUB, and Graphical Boot Manager, which also makes it possible to make such a choice at boot time.
System Commander had some unique features, that made intensive multi-boot users quite happy. It had a feature to keep partitions hidden, so when one OS loaded it could neither detect nor interfere with other OSs, installed on other partitions.
System Commander requires either 32-bit DOS or Microsoft Windows (95/98/Me/2000/XP/2003/Vista) to install. But when installed it makes it possible to manage the booting of several other operating systems including Linux (all distributions), FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris, QNX, OS/2, Darwin, older MS-DOS-based operating system like Microsoft Windows 3.x, and other DOS-based systems like DR-DOS and OpenDos and several others.
System Commander is a graphical boot manager which supports up to a 1600x1200 resolution. It also includes a partition manager (VCOM's Partition Commander) for creating, resizing and deleting partitions.
