    Omnifocus may be worth revisiting, particularly with the new web interface. I'm stuck in a Windows environment at work, which has always been a barrier to trying Omnifocus. Thanks!

    Multiple tags per item replace single contexts.
    @Home -> #Home but you can also have #10min, #1hr, et cetera if you desire.
    We'll see what the implementation is soon enough.

    IMHO one long list of items with the CTMUI (Clever Tag Management User Interface - a term invented a while ago by TesTeq) is all that is needed for GTD.
    By a CTMUI I mean:
    - easy tag assignement;
    - robust duplicate tags prevention system;
    - tag categorization (time, place, person, energy, type of the item);
    - easy filtering (saved filters management).

    In theory, sure. In practice, maybe not.
    I find that long tag lists are a pain to navigate.
    I find I do like drag and drop for putting things into categories.

    Didn't I mention the CTMUI - Clever Tag Management User Interface?
    Long tag lists are not the CTMUI.
    But of course tag management and filtering is perfect only for list/outline oriented minds like mine. Any graphic interaction with objects makes me nervous that I drop something in the wrong place and it will be lost forever. On the other hand if everything is in one list (with tags) I can always find it!

    I use tags in TaskPaper, and they work well for me. They are flexible and versatile and you get to choose when and how to use them.
