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 know about you but I would not eliminate the hierarchical structure. I certainly wouldn't want to manually tag thousands of files. Tagging could be an additional layer. But not a replacement IMHO.
