I am a relatively new Mac user, recently bought a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.9.1.
I see that there are tagging capabilities within the file system. I'm concerned about portability. If I get a new computer in a few years, how would I transfer my tags to the new system? What if I want to move my files to a Windows or Linux machine? Can I see the tags on these operating systems?
I just don't want to put some effort into the built-in tagging system only to have my tags useless at some point down the road.
