Thanks for posting, billon. I love the idea, don't much care for the nineties UI look. Some further info...

Tagstoo claims portability (untested!) both in Windows and Linux (see https://tagstoo.sourceforge.io/download.html). It's apparently dependent on the NW.JS Javascript library (previously known as Node-Webkit; for further info, see https://nwjs.io/).

Precise search possibilities, with various input fields, allowing to add all the necessary tags that you want.

Anyone know the system requirements for this program? Has 32-bit and 64-bit versions, but doesn't seem to work under Windows XP. Website documentation currently not that much help in this regard.

Very intresting. I like the way this has some file manager components, which makes a lot of sense. I'm not thrilled with the interface, which feels a little odd (cyan text on bright red background?), but I really like where it's going. I hope they put out a more minimal skin of some sort.

Reminds me a bit of TagSpaces viewtopic.php?p=83016#p83016

Also, why did you put this in Resources? Not expecting it to be portable?
