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."

Adapting from a hierarchal structure to a tagged structure isn't a drag-and-drop replacement.


Why not?

You just need a new file manager and new open / save dialogs for applications. Keep the files actually stored in a hierarchical manner.
