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."

Tracker / Nepomuk was already mentioned, but just by one guy. That, if anything, is the way tagging will emerge in Linux desktop.

Applications need to start supporting those technologies sooner rather than later. This just needs to be championed by distro.
