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."

I don't like tags. Ever since firefox introduced bookmark tagging I can't seem to properly organize my bookmarks. Its too confusing when you have both tags and directories. IMO to implement it on the level of a filesystem would be chaos.
