Type Managers

Type Manager - November 16th 2005I would like to introduce you to the future of desktop applications, the Type Manager.

Type Manager

Ah yes, the type manager; how I know thee. Seriously I have sold out to iTunes after my music became too much to manage but I still retain control over my own music hierarchy at least. In all seriousness, most type managers suck, i.e Picasa and amorok. The type manager is in and of itself a glorified evolution of the Unix pipe which takes all the separate apps that worked on one type of file and chunked them together with a GUI. It'll be interesting to see innovation in this branch of software; but I won't give up control of my "perfect" file system!
