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 certainly hope so! I was thinking this was next to impossible as well, but given that there's a forum to discuss the possibility, I'm starting to look hopeful again.

Just be sure that the tags themselves can be made to be hierarchical (e.g. tag: work -> process date -> 2010-10-10, etc.)
