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."

symlinking would mean adding a new "dir:" tag etc.


Why not just use symlinks, or even hard links, as tags then? Add a function to the file manager that creates a link in the proper directory when you "tag" a file, and you're all set!
