Mac OS X The third and final WWDC product I want to talk about is - of course - OS X 10.9 Mavericks. While iOS 7 was clearly the focus of this year's WWDC, its venerable desktop counterpart certainly wasn't left behind. Apple announced OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the first OS X release not to carry the name of a big cat.

Tags are nothing new: BeOS had attributes from the start, various *nix filesystems also support extended attributes and even NTFS understands the concept. There are plenty of archive & compression formats that understand and can store tags/attributes; ZIP being the most obvious and popular one.

What we really need to do is get everyone to agree on a standard set of tags...

Considering how hard it is to simply build a standard, weakly overlapping menu hierarchy for desktop applications (as done on Linux and BSD desktops), I don't expect a standard tagging hierarchy for each and every kind of file to appear anytime soon.
