I realized something this morning: I am ticked off that, in this day and age, no OS lets me easily annotate files or attach links to related files. It's been technically possible for years and many File Systems support data forks or other ways of associating non-file data with files. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fork_(file_system)
But even in OS's using such file systems there's no support in the file browsers. Why the hell not? Why can't I add notes and links and pictures to files?
On Mac OSX you can right-click a file in the Finder and chose 'Get Info'. That brings up a dialog box that shows you the file attributes and lets you change selected attributes. It also has a section for 'comments', which sort of allows annotation.
But it is crap to use. I can add a comments column to the Finder window, but it isn't editable there. In order to add or edit a comment it's a minimum of three clicks.
I take back one thing I said earlier: you can have arbitrary tags in OSX 10.9 or higher. But the way the UI works makes managing more than a dozen tags a real headache. And I still can't easily do text annotations, nor can I do links or picture annotations.
However, tagging in later OSX is possible and I think the search supports tags.
