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."

Beagle /tracker / nepomuk ?

This sounds like he wants beagle or nepomuk or tracker. (and gnome Zeitgeist iirc)

Implementing it at FS level will require more computing power than current FS I suppose, it wouldn't work well with mobile devices. (I'd like to be proven wrong)
