Editorial It's conventional wisdom that computers need to be "easier to use." But do they? More reliable, yes. Easier to troubleshoot, yes. But now that so many people use computers so much, I think there's something to be said for making them less easy-to-use and less intuitive.

so, the best would be a kind of database where each "file" is stored with a host of predefined data, but allso allows the user to add more data?

and then have a search system that allow you to basicly filter these files based on all this "metadata"?

sounds somhow familiar...

timeline:
give me every file created or modified between date x and date y, sorted by increasing time. ignore all file-types except text files.

network dependency graphs?
