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."

You don't need to use the command line for hard links if your file manager is sufficiently good. Konqueror has always supported linking as an action from its drag+drop popup menu. Still, it's true that hard links are not a viable solution and are a nightmare to manage.
