newdocms is a proposal for a new and radically different way of managing your documents in KDE. It is a move away from the now over 30-year-old hierarchical file system towards a meta-data-based document retrieval system. A 0.1 preview has now been released along with a description and screenshots (typical, newdocms, save, open, results -- the GUI isn't all that pretty at this point). Although not yet ready for production use, newdocms has the potential to really change the way users interact with their computer. Herein lies a challenge to the Open Source community in general, and KDE in particular, to take a step ahead of the competition in a truly innovative way. Should newdocms be a standard part of a future KDE release?
