I think NDN is considered a good frontend for archivers.

Calculator 
Big Thank you to everybody for the tips. At this moment the best commandline calculator for me is tcalc.
Does somebody know a calculator with GUI (like the one in WinXP)?

if you use a dos /freedos gui interface like desktop2 by Felix Ritter you'll have a fine & simple gui calculator ( and other) on your desktop.

Didn't DV/X come with a calculator? For me DV/X always was the closest to a GUI on dos.

Why he wants/needs a GUI calculator is beyond me. But here's a pic of DV/X's calc (more pics from here).
Sadly, DV/X isn't sold nor even available in any form anymore (though developer libs for DJGPP v1 still exist on mirrors).

Re: Calculator 
Thanks a lot for your (and everybody's) tip. Balicalc is the best GUI calculator for me, so I can add it to my favorite file manager Doszip.

I use pcalc, the programmer's calculator. Needed it to do some logical bitwise operations. Took ages to find one that works as well as this one does. Here's the download text blurb:
PCALC
Programmer's calculator, command line utility.
There was always a loophole when it came to a need to covert between hexadecimal / decimal / octal / binary.
Especially if it involved an operation like 0x1234 + 0x20 It took a lot of hard work, and mostly a good pocket calculator.
Main features:
Full math parser, paranthases, add, sub, mult, div, exponential
Automatic conversion between HEX DEC OCT BIN numbers
Mixing different bases in one expression
Definable variables
Math constants (E PI ...)
Built in math functions (sin/cos/sqrt ...)
Download
You can download pcalc at the Sourceforge website.

Surprisingly, pcalc2.tar.lzma does indeed have pcalc2/win32/pcalc.exe (as well as C sources), which is also surprisingly a MS C (circa 1992) DOS (!) .EXE.
EDIT: But it's cmdline only, no GUI (obviously?).
