Kindle DX and folders?
I'm used to Stanza on my iPod Touch which has many different folder arrangements (author, title, recently read, and several custom ones as it allows you create your own groupings and assign books to them).
I find it hard to imagine having to scroll through a long, long list of books to get to the one I want. Does it not even group books by the same author into a folder?

No folders (yet).
You can sort by author or title, though, and jump to certain pages, so it's not a total mess, but navigating lots of books is by no means easy.

I hope since the KDX is targeting the users who are using PDFs, they will reconsider the ability to add folders or tags. I have about 200+ PDF technical papers/articles and it's impossible to manage them. This is not about just reading books anymore.

"Unofficial Content Categories on Kindle 2
Kudos to Kindle Community member Bufo Calvin for this tip! With the ability to add notes to your Kindle 2 content and search for specific words or phrases on your Kindle 2's Home screen, you can categorize content by genre or other personalized terms.
Open up one of your books, select Add a Note or Highlight, and enter in a word (or words) you'd like to categorize by - genres such as history, fantasy, biography, etc. Try putting your initials or a common letter such as "x" before the word, "cshistory" or "xfantasy" for example. Save the note you chose to enter.
Now go back to your Home screen and type in the word you just used for your note. Once you've typed it, move your 5-way controller to the right and click on "Search My Items." You'll see the book you just added the note to appear. If you've added that note in multiple books, each one will appear in your search results"

Calibre is about to implement something similar for its tags by adding them directly to MOBI ebooks (Supporting Tags in Kindle). The KDX will apparently search PDF metadata, but I have no idea how extensible PDF metadata is.

useful workaround I found.
download "Bulk Rename Utility"
and add a prefix to all the pdfs or txt files in a folder. for example if you have 2 folders
you can rename automatically all the pdfs in "docs" folder adding the prefix:
so your files will show up like this:
of course if you do it also with the other foler "misc" changing the number sequentially---> 222_misc_
the files will show up on your kindle organized like in folders!
cheers from italy!
