I'm trying to put Maveric's new feature - Finder Tags - to a good use, so I have a bunch of installed applications, some I have read/write permissions but for some others I don't (All apps installed by the OS and some others, such as Parallels Desktop, to give one example).
So if I want to get a list with all apps bundled in OSX I could by typing this to Spotlight:
Apps installed (not bundled in OSX):
The beauty in it is I could, also, find all the web browsers installed (by OSX or by me) by doing this:
Or get only the browsers installed by me:
So far so good, but here is my potential issue:
To be able to tag some apps I should enable write permissions on them, tag the apps, then restore the permissions as it were before I tagged those apps. What happens when there is an update for an app I've tagged by changing its permissions?
Will I get an error? Will the app be updated successfully? Will the tag(s) remain?
