Rotfl really... people here had to wait the end of 2009 (I repeat 2009) to have a bare "folder navigation" and still they greet this feature as advanced technology while the rest of the world use metadata driven and tag based catalog and advanced searches...

Actually, folder-based storage is rather the exception in the eBook world. Neither Sony, Amazon, nor B&N have it, although the Sony has a crude single-level "pseudo-folder" facility called "collections".

Perhaps you could enlighten us as to what eBook readers have this "metadata driven and tag based catalog and advanced searches" that you are lauding?

I like folders, meta data are setted by editor, folders be me. So I sort my books the way I want.

Yeah, I like folders too and they are fine but I think the future directions are to include a more refined "tag" (or collections like "sonies", named it as you want) in ebook systems.
"Tags" allows logical views and I think are more related to the "nature" of a book ( this is actually the system most physical libraries adopt);
a hierarchy (like a filesystem, father-son) force you to think in a forward and oneway static direction.
Let's say that I have mine well done folders in cybook based on author name, it's ok and works well, but what if I need to add another layer of categorization in my current collection now.

ie. I can classify "The Pathology of Normality" with attributes like "E. Fromm", "Sociology", "Psychology" and maybe "Anthropology".
The book will appear in all the above aforementioned logical folders (or tags) among others with the same specific tags.

For example Calibre supports this kind of view and - yes - one can say that in the current landscape the implementation attempt of this concept is quite bare, but I definitely say that this will definitely be the standard to go in current and future ebook software.

Please no !
Tags on mp3 makes enough a mess of my life, i'm quite happy with NOT using them for e-books.

Libraries uses a hierarchical system since you usually do not place the same book in more than one place.

One level tags becomes pretty useless when you have thousand tags...
