What has happened to the metadata ?


Ususally in windoze you can right click on a file and fill in various meta information for the file, etc who created it and so forth.

This dosnt seem possible in linux, is this due to the filesystem im using (reiserfs) or is it just the way that linux works.

I am aware that in linux you can view some metadata of a file, but it is non editable?

well, that's nothing to do with the fs,
it depends what window manager and file browser you care to use.
the info is there obviously, if one programs "right click" to do
useful stuff then that's down to the application.

some do nothing, some give thumbnails and all sorts like
the ubuntu file manager
