Linux "For a fairly scruffy looking guy, I have a surprisingly healthy approach to organising my files. However, I'm constantly pushing up against the limitations of a system that is based around directories. I'm convinced that Linux needs to make greater use of tagging, but I'm also beginning to wonder if desktop Linux could abandon the hierarchical directory structure entirely."

Bad idea. Support for tagging is good. But having a good search function is not a substitute for files having a unique human-readable name - sometimes, you need to be able to say *this* file.
