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."

What happens when a program tries to save a file in the tags hierarchy? Either because "Save as..." defaults to the same place you opened a file from, or becuase it creates backup files?
