Modern computers have enjoyed increasing storage capacity, but the mechanisms that harness this storage power haven't improved proportionally. Whether current desktops have scaled to handle the enormous number of files computers must handle compared to just a few years ago is doubtful at best. Scalability includes not only fault tolerance or performance stability of tools for users to harness this power. The lack of appropriate structures and tools for locating, navigating, relating, and sharing bulky file sets is preventing users from harnessing their PCs' full storage power. Powering desktops with metadata, leading to the semantic desktop, is a promising way to realize this potential. The seMouse approach realizes the promising vision of the semantic desktop. This approach provides seamless integration between file-centered tooling and semantically aware, resource-centered applications.
